A great video with Dr. Avram Nemetz of Affiliated Physicians explaining very clearly the difference between seasonal flu, avian flu, and pandemic flu and why we are concerned about H5N1. He explains how a pandemic will happen and how it will affect the world. It is very easy to understand, a great one to send to others you want to reach with the warning to prep. Also, great for new flubies who need a panflu 101 crash course!

It’s the disease the world has been fearing. No country is prepared. Scientists now believe it’s only a matter of time before another major ... all » epidemic kills tens of millions. The most likely source is a mutation of the influenza virus, now killing birds and humans across Asia. But what would happen if such a virus struck? Can anything be done to prepare? This week’s high-quality documentary investigates the threat posed by Avian flu.
(10:44)

This is the first 10 min. of a pretty good video...apparently you have to purchase the rest of the video ... but the first 10 min. they show is worth the 'teaser' they allow you to see, if you don't mind being left in the lurch to want to see the rest! :roll:

1918 Flu
PBS/Nova/Science Now, Aired on PBS November 21, 2006(12:51)

Very Good ... Great explanations of Avian virus that anyone can easily grasp, and the correlation with 1918 Flu. Worth watching to get a grasp on understanding the mechanics of virus.

H5N1 Killer Flu

47 minutes | RealPlayer and Windows Media formats

The next global human flu epidemic may begin with a sick duck in Vietnam's Mekong River Delta, now the epicenter of a deadly bird flu outbreak. The World Health Organization estimates that the H5N1 virus -- which already has jumped species from birds to humans -- could kill tens of millions of people worldwide. WIDE ANGLE travels to Vietnam to investigate the threat of a global pandemic, portraying Vietnam's response to outbreaks in its cities, provinces and villages, where doctors, epidemiologists, and veterinarians are battling the virus. As the government tries to contain the disease and educate its people, there is growing evidence that the virus is evolving and already may have begun to spread via human-to-human contact for the first time, dramatically increasing the risk of a worldwide catastrophe.

Although each segement can be watched separately, whole video is recommended. If you watch any ... part 4 is significant!

Go Here for link to all: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/shows ... video.html

Part 1: Thuan's Story
Running time: 11:42
Thuan, a teenage girl from southern Vietnam, falls ill with a severe case of bird flu after eating chicken thought to have been infected with the H5N1 virus.

Part 2: Tracking the Virus
Running time: 8:55
A team of doctors, virologists, and public health officials in Vietnam track the spread of the H5N1 virus and closely monitor the potential for the virus to mutate into a more dangerous form.

Part 3: An Evolving Threat
Running time: 11:36
The appearance of three cases of H5N1 infection within the same family causes experts to wonder whether the virus has become more efficient and, as a result, a much greater threat to humans.

Part 4: Preparing for a Pandemic
Running time: 12:54
In addition to killing millions of ducks and chickens, the Vietnamese government implements a series of measures in an effort to contain the avian flu outbreak. But health officials worry that a pandemic, for which the world would be unprepared, could still occur.
