Medical Explorers (Series) (1973)

Medical Explorers provided overviews of medical history but, as the title suggests, it concentrated on individual contributions to the evolution of health care. Leonardo da Vinci, Sir William Harvey, who mapped the circulatory system, Charles Sheffington, pioneer in neurology, Lister and Jenner, the innovators of the smallpox vaccine, Christopher Wren, Florence Nightingale, Frank Fairchild Wesbrook, the developer of the ambulance, and Canadian Sir William Osler were all profiled in the series.
