- Program Description
There are now 10 nations in the world conducting offensive biological warfare weapons programs. Cheap -- and now technologically possible to produce and refine into weapons of mass destruction -- biological warfare has the potential to do as much damage to civilian populations as nuclear weapons. Presenting new evidence from scientists, terrorist groups, military intelligence officers and policy makers, FRONTLINE examines the threat biological warfare poses to world security and the responses some Western nations are frantically developing.
