Emmy® award winning documentary Immortal shows the astonishing discovery made by a team of scientists led by Australian-born professor, Elizabeth Blackburn – the key to unlimited life – and the secret of endless youth. Deep in the DNA of a humble pond creature, Professor Blackburn co-discovered an ‘immortalising’ enzyme, a chemical catalyst that can keep cells young, forever. In 2009 this discovery was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine. But, this is no simple ‘cure’ for ageing. For the same enzyme that fuels endless youth, also fuels cancer. Immortal reveals the inner workings of this biological paradox and its remarkable impact on ageing, stress, disease and cancer.
