In this clip (12.5 mins) from Countryfile, the BBC’s weekly rural and environmental interests show, the use of antibiotics in animal husbandry is discussed. Unsurprisingly, given the original Sunday tea-time transmission slot (7pm on 7th September), the package does not go into any great details regarding the science of antibiotic resistance. Nevetheless it does nicely set the scene for a discussion of the uses of antibiotic past and present, in the UK and overseas. The potential consequences for human and animal health are raised. I could see this being used in a variety of context with microbiologists, agriculture students or vets.
