SCENE 1 - ENTRY
Title Shot
NARRATOR
How does bacteria become resistant
to antibiotics, there are many
reasons as to why, so lets start
with one
CAMERA FADES FROM
BLACK ONTO THE SCENE
OF THE HOST CREATING
A WOUND ON THEIR ARM
NARRATOR
Bacterial infections are caused by
many things, the food we eat or
through open wounds. This infection
has occurred through an open wound
from piercing the skin on rusty
metal

This is the bacteria that has

and this type particularly causes
Typhoid. Typhoid causes the chest
to develop red spots and also
causes intestinal irritation

As the bacteria travels around the
blood stream it begins to take
advantage of the bodies resources
to multiply. The multiplication of
the bacteria begins to occur every
20-30 minutes in the blood stream

As the bacteria population
increases, it begins to consume
more of the bodies resources and

NARRATOR
The hosts body soon becomes swamped
with the infection and the host
starts to feel its effect, feeling
nauseated. The host is soon
prescribed antibiotics as the body
itself cannot fight the infection
alone.

NARRATOR
POP UP
The host is prescribed
Ciprofloxacin, a bactericidal
antibiotic. Antibiotics are
engineered to target only certain
bacteria, this means that the
antibiotic cannot unnecessarily
attack healthy bacteria.

NARRATOR
Once the host digests the

to break it down, preparing it so
that it can be absorbed into the
stomachs lining through the to

When the course is stopped before
it is finished, the dose within the

NARRATOR
POP UP
This is a more resistant bacteria
cell, as a result of not completing
the course the host has given this
bacteria an opportunity to mutate
by picking up DNA from dead cells
and the misuse of the antibiotics.
In order to fight off this new
strain of resistant bacteria, a
high dose of a new antibiotic is
required.

NARRATOR
As the antibiotic comes close to
encountering the area populated by
the infection it tries to search
for its target, but as a result of
the mutation in the genes, it
changes the overall demeanour of
the bacteria and therefore the
antibiotic does not register it as
a harmful bacteria. The antibiotic
then continues its search for the
target it has been engineered for.

NARRATOR
The new strain of bacteria begins
to spread the infection to other
parts of the body, increasing its
population with new found space and
resources.

The condition can become so severe

NARRATOR
Antibiotics are slowing becoming a
thing of the past, our misuse of
them has created different strains
of one bacteria, creating the super
bug which are resistant to most
antibiotics. Don't rely on
antibiotics or there wont be any
left to rely on.
