Pain - Dr Michael Mosley tells the extraordinary story of how scientists learnt to use the world around us to heal our bodies and conquer the common afflictions of pain, pus and poison. He explores how certain chemicals were discovered, captured, understood and finally exploited. The first episode explores how the scientific revolution really began with the isolation of morphine at the start of the 19th century - and continued into the 20th century with the manufacture of aspirin.
