First part in an exciting new 5-part medical history series for BBC1 taking a look at how healthcare has changed over the decades using archive and contributor interviews to take a trip down memory... lane and chart progress that has been made. The fifth episode takes a look at the first ever heart transplant procedure on a baby; advances made in eyewear from the time of NHS glasses to laser eyes surgery; public information films made by the government to advise us on everything from how to walk down the stairs to sneezing in public; and the advent of the air ambulance.
