Why Does Ice Cream Make My Head Hurt?

In the second series of his 'Things You Need to Know', James May explains why a tasty rum fudge sundae can be such a pain in the noggin and although it won't make you popular in the ice cream parlour, the odd naughty word can sometimes help you out. Through a heady mix of mind bending 2D animation, 3D graphics and downright hilarious archive, James uncovers that although it doesn't feel like it, pain is actually on your side - it's really alerting you to sources of harm.
