Summary
This documentary tells the strange story of how researchers discovered that a lethal gas, nitric oxide, was central to some of the most basic functions of our bodies. The program introduces Professor John Gillespie, distinguished research scholar at the University of Glasgow in Scotland and at the Rockefeller Institute in the United States. He is featured along with Nobel laureates Bob Furchgott, Louise Ignarro, and Ferid Murad. These world-renowned scholars together are credited with the discovery of nitric oxide's important role in the cardiovascular and nervous systems
