Most people prefer to bury their heads in the sand rather than think about the risk of cancer. But habits and lifestyles picked up when young have a big impact in later life. Vicky's fear of breast cancer is so acute, she's had a double mastectomy to reduce her chances; confirmed smoker Darius finds out just what the poisonous chemicals are doing to every organ and tissue in his body; and John makes good use of a pile of wooden building blocks to explain just what happens when a cell becomes cancerous.

How far would you go to win at your favourite sport? Would you take anything that's not on the banned list? Or would you refuse even a simple supplement? In this sweaty episode, John Marsden asks what counts as cheating today. For instance - he tests claims that caffeine improves stamina by about 5% (which is plenty enough to make the difference between fourth and gold) and asks if it's true, how come caffeine was left off the banned list for the Athens Olympics?

Humans are very sensitive to touch and different parts of our body have different sensitivities. In fact, when it comes to our sense of touch, humans are similar to elephants. The different density of touch sensors in the skin, in different parts of the body, explains why some parts of the body seem to have a much lower pain threshold. A microscopic splinter in a finger can be extremely painful, while a cut on your leg may not hurt as much! Ultimately, pain involves much more than what's happening with the touch sensors in the skin. It has a lot to do with what's going on in the brain.

We set out to discover the biological reasons why humans eat such a range of diverse tasting dishes, and watch while contestants at a chilli eating contest push their taste buds to the limit. Compared to many animals, humans have a try anything once attitude to food and this has allowed us to populate every corner of the planet, while many other animals depend totally on one food source for their energy, which limits where they can survive.

Derek is the strangest sleeper in Europe. Repeated medical attempts to treat his sleep problems have failed him and he continues to undergo a strange metamorphosis from a mild-mannered gentleman by day into a thrashing wild animal while he sleeps. Derek's night-time antics have been so violent, he has had to resort to drastic action like building a grate down the middle of the bed that he shares with his wife to protect her. He has head butted and punched the walls, ripped out light fittings and made violent dives out of bed, waking with blood and bruises all over his body.

Balance is our true sixth sense; it enables us to sense how our bodies are moving around. There are only two kinds of animal that spend their whole lives performing the tricky balancing act of walking on two legs. Balancing can be a deceptively complex business. Stunt co-ordinator Marc Cass takes us for a dramatic drive, to demonstrate how the balance organs let us know how we're being yanked around, and even turned upside down. For really fine balance, we need our eyes to help us work out exactly what the body is doing in relation to the outside world.
