Presented by Meera Senthilingam.


A small group of influenza viruses or virons


This week we peer down into the 'flu virus to find out how this virus is becoming resistant to the drugs we use to fight it, and how 'protective' viruses can be used to attack it instead. We also investigate how 'flu vaccines work to give us protection to fight off an infection before it takes hold. Plus, we bring you the latest science news and discover the consequences of tasering an elephant in Question of the Week!
