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. In this programme we'll discover just what pain is, why we want to control it and how we ultimately did it, when the discovery of 'Morphine', the worlds first pharmaceutical at the beginning of the 19th Century led to a 200 year journey of scientific breakthrough, discovery and self experimentation.
