The documentary is produced by Ken Burns, based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book by author Siddhartha Mukerjee "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies". As noted from the AACR web site, "The series covers cancer's first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the 20th century to cure, control, and conquer it, to a radical new understanding of its essence. It also features the current status of cancer knowledge and treatment the dawn of an era in which cancer may become a chronic or curable illness rather than its historic death sentence in some forms."
