Michael Mosley Vs The Su­per­bugs

The TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

BBC Earth, 8.30pm

In a project that melds art with weird sci­ence, Michael Mosley (above) uses a life-sized agar sculp­ture of him­self to demon­strate the ef­fects of su­per­bugs. Mosley’s jelly dop­pel­ganger, closely re­sem­bling a creepy hor­ror movie prop, gives view­ers an eye-open­ing view of what hap­pens when the su­per­bugs take over our bod­ies. While the word ‘su­per­bug’ sug­gests a wee­vil in a cape and tights, it’s ac­tu­ally an an­tibi­otic-re­sis­tant bac­te­rial in­fec­tion.
