Australian Story - All the Pretty Horses
Veterinarian Ben Cunneen and vet nurse Natalie Beohm were good friends through their work at the Redlands Veterinary Clinic, near Brisbane. Last year, they ended up in adjoining hospital rooms, the latest victims of the deadly and mysterious Hendra horse virus.
The virus, which was discovered in a Brisbane suburb only fifteen years ago, is one of the most virulent on the planet with a fifty percent death rate. Ben Cunneen and Natalie Beohm both contracted the virus while working with sick horses.
This episode charts the pair's desperate battle with the virus through the eyes of their families and doctors, who've never spoken publicaly before. And it reveals, for the first time, the very bittersweet twist to the tale.
