How do chemicals from some of our most common plants form the base of some of the most revolutionary drugs in medicine? We'll follow a scientist researching how a plant from the wormwood family can help cure Malaria. With Alzheimer's on the increase, we see how a drug from the leek can slow down memory loss and we follow a team working to find out why a leek growing in the Brecon Beacons produces more of this drug than those growing elsewhere.
