PBS special on Typhoid Mary

On my local PBS station tonight is a special about Typhoid Mary, as follows:

"Woman Cook a Walking Typhoid Fever Factory," said the headline in a New York City newspaper in 1907. The woman was Mary Mallon, an Irish immigrant who as "Typhoid Mary" would become a notorious symbol of a public health menace. NOVA explores the legacy of one of history's most infamous disease carriers.

Not sure if other local PBS stations are showing it, but it sure sounds intriguing.
