Spurred by a personal tragedy, America's foremost documentarian is tackling cancer. Ken Burns examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The series artfully weaves three different films in one: a riveting historical documentary; an engrossing and intimate verite film; and a scientific and investigative report.
[part 1]. Magic bullets
[part 2]. The blind men and the elephant
[part 3]. Finding an Achilles heel. Special features: Interview with the filmmakers
