Cameron calls time

I'm not in the pharmaceutical trade, but I remember a documentary on declining efficacy of antibiotics years ago (over 10 years ago). It featured people in Russia collecting samples from sewerage outflows to find alternatives to antibiotics.

Can't remember the name of them, began with 'ph...' I think.

What's happened to this and why's it taken so long? Why does it have to be a timebomb before anything is done about it when we've know for years - as we have the ageing population, pensions shortfalls, etc.
