Operation Ouch!

Identical twins Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken experiment and explore their way through the fascinating world of medicine and biology. The doctors explain how people breathe by inflating a real pig's lung and Xand finds out all about the biological changes that happen when people hold their breath. Dr Chris gets icky and picky as he takes a very close look at the job that snot, bogies and mucus do in the body. And there is no need to be scared of scars as the programme finds out how skin heals itself after an injury. Meanwhile, over in accident and emergency, one patient is rushed in with a worrying eye injury after a dangerous accident with a pellet gun, and the trauma team is on standby as another comes into hospital with a potentially serious head injury.
