THE STORIES, sampling the series

Colin Blakemore presents the BMJ’s new video series, told in eight parts. These stories delve into the BMJ’s 169 year old archive to unearth some of the leading thinkers of their time, and show the contribution they have made to modern medicine.

In this first video, Colin introduces the series and shows a sneak preview of what will follow in the coming weeks. Stories will include the birth of anaesthetic, the discovery of the anopheles mosquito as the vector for malaria, and the studies that hailed the link between smoking and lung cancer.
