Wellcome Library gets a Healthcheck

The most recent web edition of the BBC's Healthcheck series aired last week, discussing Professor Gareth Williams's new book The Angel of Death, on the history and eradication of Smallpox.

The feature is illustrated by an oil painting from our collections ('Edward Jenner vaccinating a boy' by Eugène-Ernest Hillemacher. Wellcome Library, no. 45436i) and is available to watch through the BBC website.
