Thoroughly fascinating and informative, highly recommended viewing. Part one relating to Pain made me "wince" a few times however; I wondered why Michael Mosley put himself through the gruesome pain of inserting a needle right through his hand and self medicating on several forms of anesthesia. I understand it was to clarify the side effects of the drugs and how they work, however in my humble opinion it was a tad "OTT" albeit in reality, it did not diminish on what really was a top quality documentary on the subject.
