Nova : Venom - Natures Killer:

Inside the bodies of many creatures are extreme toxic cocktails, but the animals that produce them are starting to go extinct. You might think that's a good thing but these destructive and extreme poisons could contain the building blocks for a new generation of advanced drugs that could treat heart attack, stroke, diabetes, obesity and cancer. Nova follows scientists on their expeditions to track down and capture the planet's most deadly creatures, risking life and limb just to tease out milligrams of venom and get it back to the lab. Find out how nature's deadliest cocktails could be medicine's brightest new hope.
