Hosted by award-winning comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Best Medicine is an uplifting panel discussion show for BBC Radio 4 that celebrates the inspiring past, present and future of medicine.

It's all about little-known facts and deep dives into the science, happy accidents and pioneering historical characters of medicine. Kiri will challenge a panel of medical experts and comedians to each make a case for what they think is 'the best medicine', and each guest will champion an invention, a technique, a pill, potion or person. Whether it's world-changing science, an obscure invention or an unsung hero, it's always something worth celebrating.

Did you know there's a pill made out of cameras you can swallow to check for cancer? Or that you can 3D print artificial ovaries, blood vessels, even pancreases? Or that the first ever successful tooth transplant was on the head of a cockerel?
