This was a fascinating and scary programme on chemical and biological weapons, the poor man's nuclear weapon.

Quote:
Dr Michael Mosley investigates Britain's most secretive and controversial military research base, Porton Down, on its 100th anniversary. He comes face to face with chemical and biological weapons old and new, reveals the truth about shocking animal and human testing, and discovers how the latest science and technology are helping to defend us against terrorist attacks and rogue nations.


I'm surprised we don't see/hear more about chemical and biological weapons in the context of terrorism.
