Blood and Guts: A History of Surgery

Not for the fainthearted, but very interesting. Each programme in the five-part series covers a different branch of surgery. Part one is about neurosurgery “Into the Brain” and shows live brain surgery on a conscious woman.

Not terribly keen on the goofy, posh feller hosting the programme (pictured right), but he’s harmless enough.

Into the Brain is now available for four days on iPlayer, or failing that a torrent is also available. Old timers can also buy the DVD.
