My family and I just watched "Contagion" on pay TV - and were most impressed. Reasonably true to life, all sorts of realistic scenarios, Ian Lipkin appearing as an extra - and one wonderful quote:
"Someone doesn't have to weaponise the bird flu. The birds are doing that". Contagion is only a movie - but that's so true.
Oh, and an uncredited appearance by Darren Martin's wonderful recombination analysis package, RDP 3.0 - at 1hr 15 min from the end.
