As parents and children go on a journey to sample the best and the worst of a teenage holiday. As part of the Dangerous Pleasures season, this three-part series looks at the biological process behind three of the most commonly used recreational drugs — cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy. Using groundbreaking CGI, How Drugs Work takes the viewer on a journey deep inside the human body to explain exactly how these powerful substances take effect.
Each episode will closely follow one drug on a virtual journey through the user's internal systems. At each location on our tour of the body, we learn about the fascinating and often surprising scientific reasons for how these drugs work and also the damage they can cause. The programme will feature interviews with toxicologists, neuro-scientists and medical pharmacologists who will explain the facts behind subjecting your body to these Dangerous Pleasures and also resolve some well known myths.
