Tens of thousands of people die annually from venomous taipans, mambas, black widows, bees and even octopuses. Now, from the safety of your home, discover the astonishing power of nature’s lethal chemical arsenal. See how animals deliver their fatal venom. Meet the scientists developing equally powerful anti- venoms and the Australian man who has somehow survived a staggering 150 bites from some of the world’s deadliest snakes. Then, enter the human body as vivid 3D graphics and stunning images captured by endoscopic cameras display venom’s murderous effect on the human body.. Nature’s chemical arsenal performs its deadly work on human and animal bodies.

Venom explores the world of venom in a new way: it’s a combination of the latest research, remarkable natural history footage, state-ofthe-art film techniques – and high drama.

Every year, tens of thousands of people die from attack by the most venomous animals - taipans, mambas, funnel webs, black widows, blue-ringed octopuses, and bees and wasps. With 15,000 people each year dying of snakebites in the Indian sub-continent and one million people worldwide being bitten by snakes, understanding nature's chemical arsenal is vital to scientists - and to human life. Venom combines the latest research, remarkable natural history footage, state-of-the- art film techniques and high drama to uncover the astonishing power of nature's offensive chemicals... and how science is racing to combat them.

Which animals carry the most deadly venom? Every year, tens of thousands of people die from attack by the most venomous animals – taipans,mambas, funnel webs, black widows, blue-ringed octopuses… and bees and wasps.(You may be surprised to know that bees kill more people each year than the world’s most venomous snake.)

We are then shown both the mechanisms which animals use to deliver venom and – for the first time – with the aid of endoscopy and 3D graphics, how different venom works on the human body.

We also hear the fascinating and varied stories of victims of potentially deadly bites, for example, Graeme Gowe from Humpty Doo in Northern Australia, who has somehow survived a staggering 150 bites from some of the world’s deadliest snakes.

Finally, Venom looks at the latest scientific research being conducted on the development of anti-venoms.With 15,000 people each year dying of snakebites in the Indian sub-continent and one million people worldwide being bitten by snakes – it is vital work.

Venom is a dramatic and fascinating programme, which uncovers the astonishing power of nature’s offensive chemicals… and how science is racing to combat them.
