Your future is being created now - for better or worse.
One breath of a nerve gas will kill you... and so will a drop of it through the skin. One plane-load of it could wipe out the people of a city like Leeds without destroying the buildings.
One plane flying along the coast of Britain could spray enough germs in one night to infect much of the population of London... they would not know they had been infected and they would all become ill at about the same time.
What are the facts behind statements like these? How have chemical and biological weapons come to equal nuclear weapons as potential mass killers? What protection is there against them? What, if anything, prevents their being used? What goes on inside Britain's secret research centre at Porton Down in Wiltshire?
Tonight's documentary film sets out to provide an answer to these questions.

In 1943, when the war was at its height, a pretty girl of sixteen, crippled with rheumatoid arthritis, was admitted to a geriatric hospital. Today, twenty-five years later, Pamela La Fane is still there, living in a hospital surrounded by the old and the dying. Everyone agrees that she ought not to be there, that there should be some other way of caring for her and the 3,000 young chronic sick like her. This three-part enquiry looks not only at Pamela's life in hospital but her struggle to find a new life outside.
