Sleeping sickness is one of the most deadly of the forgotten diseases. Experts thought it had been destroyed decades ago. But it’s back with a vengeance, and as we see in this documentary, mobile field teams are out in the African bush carrying out blood tests and lumbar punctures to beat the disease. Even so, for many of its victims, the drugs used to treat the disease are fatal in up to 10 percent of cases.
