Pain, Pus and Poison: The Search for Modern Medicines

Dr. Michael Mosley shows how drugs have revolutionised medicine and changed the course of human history.

Unfolding over a period of 200 years, it's an extraordinary tale of daring, self-experimentation, revelation, genius, and outright luck.

In three episodes, Mosley recounts how humans have learned to fight back against disease and death – from unleashing the power of nature's medicine cabinet to the mass production of modern pharmaceuticals.

With his characteristic enthusiasm, sense of fun, and hands-on approach, Mosley takes you on a journey of discovery and scientific breakthrough that has saved millions of lives and transformed our world – and that promises a personalised, genetic approach to medicine in the future.

In the series premiere, "Pain": Pain has a profound effect on our bodies - when we are experiencing it, millions of nerve cells deep within our brains are firing, telling us 'it hurts' - and for centuries the challenge has been to find something that will lessen or even switch off these sensations to bring us relief.

Dr Mosley discovers just what pain is, why we want to control it and how we ultimately did it when the discovery of morphine, the world's first pharmaceutical, at the beginning of the 19th century led to a 200-year journey of scientific breakthrough, discovery and self-experimentation.
