At present many young men and women want to be doctors - far more than the medical schools can take. This programme shows what happens to the student who does gain admittance, and attempts to outline the tradition of medical teaching, describing the legacy of knowledge that is handed from generation to generation. Only a few of the many great names can be remembered. Among them are Joseph Lister, Louis Pasteur, Edward Jenner, John Hunter, Laennec, Ambroise Pare, Vesalius, Galen, and Hippocrates
with Shirley Gray, Dick James, Freddie Overton, and Len Scrivener and Nellie Duggan.
