Daniel Dae Kim, Lost and Hawaii Five-O, takes on a gripping new role in a National Geographic thriller based on the true events of the 2001 anthrax attacks on the US. In this conversation with News24's Herman Eloff he draws parallels between the battles fought then and the current global crisis.

Twenty years ago, shortly after the horrific attacks of 11 September 2001, a second deadly attack was launched on the US.

This time it wasn't an instantly visible act of violence that the world would see play off on their TV screens. Instead, it arrived unnoticed in Florida, Washington DC, and New York.
