Story of Medicine, The: Pain, Pus and Poison
| Documentary | Special Interest
In this "entertaining medical series" (The Sunday Times, U.K.), Dr. Michael Mosley shows how drugs have revolutionized 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 personalized, genetic approach to medicine in the future.
