Chris and Xand van Tulleken really get down to basics when they explain how your urine can tell you if you’ve had enough water to drink. Then Dr Chris meets some of the deadliest snakesin the world when he helps to collect their venom and learns how it can save lives.

Meanwhile, over in Accident and Emergency, one patient has banged his head on some railings and another has a huge black eye.

About this programme

The doctors perform an awesome experiment with wee to explain what it is made of and why our bodies produce it. Dr Chris comes face to face with 180 of the world's most dangerous snakes to find out the devastating damage that snake venom can have on the human body. And Dr Xand goes on call with an emergency ambulance team. Meanwhile, over in accident and emergency, one patient has a big hole in his head after crashing his bike into some railings and another is a sight for sore eyes after falling off a chair and ending up with a black eye.
