top-10-documentaries-and-series-about-viruses

A report from Wuhan cut off from the world, the story of the fight against the Ebola virus, memories of the Spanish epidemic and other educational projects.


Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak

At the beginning of the year, when coronavirus was not yet widely publicized, Pandemic appeared on Netflix - a six-part project dedicated to the global cause of the fight against viruses and, in fact, summarizing many documentaries from this collection.  Its creators methodically analyze the process of the emergence of new strains; answer why it usually happens in poor countries and how some infections spread through animals.


American Experience: Influenza 1918

The history of the spread of coronavirus is often compared with the events of a hundred years ago.  Then, in a world not yet recovering from World War I, an epidemic of Spanish flu was raging. The episode of the cult documentary series American Adventure is dedicated to her.


We Heard the Bells: the Influenza of 1918

This movie is also dedicated to the well known 1918 epidemic.  But this is not an attempt to recreate the events of a century ago, but rather the desire to reflect them.  The main characters are old people from different parts of the USA who, as children, became eyewitnesses of the spread of the disease.  They recall how they did not believe that the Spaniard would touch them, how they had faced the death of relatives and friends, how they were ill themselves - and after that they had a long biased attitude, because other people were afraid that they would infect them too.  According to many heroes of the movie, the events of those years became the most terrible memories in life.


The Lockdown: One Month in Wuhan

A documentary project about life in the famous city of Wuhan during its complete isolation.  At the beginning of 2020, 11 million people remained on their own at the epicenter of the spread of coronavirus.  The main characters are doctors, officials and ordinary citizens, who were able to organize themselves in the face of the disease.


How to Survive a Plague

Contrary to the name, this movies is not a training manual on what to do in the event of a “black death” pandemic.  We are talking about HIV and AIDS - diseases that they preferred to remain silent about until a certain time - but somewhere they are still silent today.


Fire in the Blood

If treating HIV-infected people in America is a difficult but solvable problem, then in Africa it is almost impossible.  The fact is that many pharmaceutical giants refuse to voluntarily supply medicines necessary for antiretroviral therapy to poor countries.  Because of this, dozens of people who are unable to receive treatment die every day.


Why Do Viruses Kill?

Of all the projects on the list, this is perhaps the least optimistic.  The movie was released 10 years ago after the swine flu pandemic, which killed some 18,000 people.  Then it became obvious that we are still powerless in front of some of the creatures of nature and that modern science is not fully aware of the mechanisms of the emergence of new strains.  "Why are viruses killing?" introduces us to the device of viruses and answers the question why, even today, scientists cannot stop their spread in time.


Hero with a Thousand Faces

From 2014 to 2016, a disease was raging in West Africa, killing more than 11,000 people.  But this movie is not about how quickly Ebola destroys a person from the inside, but about people who are fighting an epidemic.  The focus of the crew going to Sierra Leone is doctors and volunteers risking their lives.


Mosquito

Speaking of Ebola and other viral diseases, one can not help but talk about other human enemies.  We have long been accustomed to them and often do not even take them seriously, but they very often carry deadly infectious diseases.  That's right, we are talking about mosquitoes. The movie contains a fascinating and consistent story about how they reproduce, what they feed on and for what global epidemics these seemingly harmless insects are responsible.


Coronavirus: Explained

The most relevant project on the list.  This is the new season of the Explained documentary series, whose authors in half-hourly videos answer simple questions about health, sex, politics and economics in simple language.  One of the episodes of last season was devoted to epidemics - in it, Bill Gates and a team of visiting doctors discussed the likelihood that a new pandemic will happen in the next decade.  Alas, their predictions came true even faster.

9-exciting-and-informative-series-about-the-vikings

Semi-fantasy epic dramas, funny comedies and serious documentary studies. This are the best series collected by Bemorepanda about Vikings.



Hem till Midgård

The action takes place in the village of Midgord, where people still sacredly believe in the old Scandinavian gods.  The terrible leader Snorre den Store, together with his gang of Vikings, floats away to kill and rob.  Meanwhile, the settlement remains in the hands of his youngest son, Lille Snorre, a loser and a sloven.


Vikings

The series from the History Channel tells about the life and adventures of the semi-legendary Scandinavian leader Ragnar Lodbroka, a direct descendant of the war god Odin.  The hero and his companions go to England, establish settlements, and then discover France.  As the plot develops, Ragnar from an ordinary Scandinavian becomes first a jarl, and then a king.


The Last Kingdom

Events unfold during the reign of King Alfred the Great.  The narration is conducted on behalf of the main character Utred Bebbanburgsky, a Saxon aristocrat.  The young man was raised by the Vikings, who killed his father and older brother.  The young warrior will have to decide which side to take in decisive battles for the fate of Britain.


Vikingane

The Viking squad trapping in the sea raids returns to their native village.  There heroes are waiting for feasts, battles, domestic problems, family squabbles and a looming political crisis.


Vinland Saga

Bogatyr Torso decides to leave the Yomsviking group (a professional fraternity specializing in robbery) in order to lead a quiet life with his family.  However, the past still catches up with the hero: seven years later, Torso is found and killed by mercenaries.  The surviving little son Torfinn is forced to join the gang that killed his father.


BBC: Blood of the Vikings

The Vikings forever left their mark in the history of England, while not so much is known about the impudent invaders themselves.  Archaeologist Julian Richards is trying to figure out what really happened in those difficult times.


1066

The three-part documentary series directed by Justin Hardy tells the tragic story of the capture of England by the Norman Duke Wilhelm, also known as William the Conqueror.

 The creators were especially successful in the images of ordinary people - Norwegians, Saxons and Normans, and artistic techniques did not damage historical accuracy.


Vikings

The writer Neil Oliver goes to Scandinavia to discover the mysterious world of the Vikings.  There, he discovers unique historical artifacts that help him understand who these northern sailors really were.


Real Vikings

If a fantasy look at Ragnar Lodbrock’s biography doesn’t suit you, check out the Canadian four-episode documentary series.  Here, invited experts help to understand how people actually lived in ancient Scandinavia.
