History of Medicine for laughs
A new 'near-the-bone' comedy-drama starts on BBC2 next Tuesday, set in the world of Victorian medicine in England. Quacks features a surgeon, an alienist, an anaesthetist and a frustrated female practitioner, as they experiment with new theories and techniques, and try to win fame and save lives.
The Centre for the History of Medicine at Warwick is a lively, interdisciplinary community of scholars and students engaged in research and teaching in the history of medicine, the life sciences and public health.
