Product Description:

The eradication of polio ranks high on the list of American achievements. Thanks to the dedication of Jonas Salk and his team of advocates, what was once a terrifying public health crisis is now a relic and a testament to the power of science. This entry in the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE series looks back at the 1950s--when the disease was ravaging young lives--and chronicles Salk's quest to create a vaccine. THE POLIO CRUSADE features intimate interviews with survivors as well as a scientist who aided Salk in his research.

Description by PBS Video:

Based in part on David Oshinsky's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Polio: An American Story, this one-hour film chronicles a decades-long crusade, fueled by the bold leadership of a single philanthropy and its innovative public relations campaign, and features a bitter battle between two scientists and the breakthrough of a forgotten woman researcher.
