BBC Radio Scotland history of medicine programmes

Just heard of this, so sorry for late notice!

A series of programmes from the BBC on the history of medicine - 2 days left to listen to it online, and it is 330 minutes long, with several programmes.

The blurb on the website states:

"BBC Scotland's health correspondent, Eleanor Bradford looks back at the history of medicine in Scotland. Featuring Billy Kay's four part series Cheating Death, the story of the Lennox Castle Hospital and The Lock in Glasgow. We'll also be hearing about the benefits of fresh air, and celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in an archived programme from 1979."
