  • By Maggie.
  • I'm Dr. Alexander Fleming and I work in a lab, studying bacteria and diseases at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School. I focus on wound infection and I grow bacteria to try and find vaccines for infections.
  • At the Battlefield...
  • This is such tragedy! Too much people have died, we have tried to save them but the wounds are infected too badly.
  • If only there was a cure!
  • After Alexander came back from holiday...
  • One of my dishes grew mould on it! And even more surprising, the bacteria near it has died.
  • And just like that, Dr. Fleming discovered penicillin.
  • I wonder if the mould could kill bacteria.
  • 10 years later...
  • I'm Ernst Chain. Dr. Fleming's discovery was great. Sadly no one believed him! I've got to show my friend Howard Florely in Australia.
  • But first I have to see if it would work...
  • And the penicillin did work. Ersnt Chain and Howard Florely decided to make penicillin a more recongnised vaccine. But how?
  • Howard Florely
  • Let's see if the penicillin actually works!
  • So they took the discovery to America...
  • Now, penicillin is one of the most popular medicine in the world.
  • And the American scientists supported their idea, thinking that it should be sold as a mass product.
  • Great idea! We should make it a mass-product! This could save hundred of lives!
