A wonderful documentary available at SBS On Demand.
We experience pain from the moment we are born until our dying breath. We spend our lives trying to escape it, yet it is essential for our very survival. This documentary explores how genetics, the latest scanning techniques, virtual reality and hypnosis are helping us to unravel some of the mysteries behind pain. Find out why some feel more pain than others, meet the people who feel no pain at all and discover why our emotions and thoughts can influence our perception of pain. (From the UK) (Documentary).
