An unusual, humorous and educational show for children

Following their sold-out Australian tour in January 2017, Dr Chris and Dr Xand, the stars of hit ABC ME children's television series, "Operation Ouch!", are coming back to Australia with a brand new show which will play in Bunbury and Mandurah as well as two shows in Perth.

TV's favourite identical twins have been hard at work they have been creating more incredible medical stunts and even crazier experiments and the show is packed with fascinating facts about biology and the awesome things your body can do.

Plus you'll also get the chance to watch your favourite bits from the TV show! Dr Chris and Dr Xand will show us just how incredible the human body is. There will be big stunts and experiments as they explore the extraordinary ways medicine can fix us.

Dr Chris & Dr X were nominated for Best Presenter at the BAFTA Children's Awards again in 2017 for "Operation Ouch!"

Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken are doctors and identical twins, as well as TV presenters.

Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken grew up in London and trained in medicine at Oxford University, graduating in 2002.

They have combined work in the UK's National Health Service with global health work and television, appearing in the following:

* Blizzard: Race to the Pole
Medicine Men
Medicine Men Go Wild
Operation Ouch!

The show has won two BAFTA's and is now in its fifth season.

It is currently on the ABC in Perth and around Australia.


"Operation Ouch!" is a British children's educational television programme about the human body, showing what happens in Accident and Emergency sections and what doctors sometimes have problems with, and great experiments.

The first series of "Operation Ouch!" went to air in England in October 2012, and ABC Australia in 2013. The show is hosted by twin brothers Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken.

They have now finished Series 5 which was on earlier in 2017.

In order to educate children about medicine and biology, Drs Chris and Xand van Tulleken perform experiments on the human body to see how they work.

They also investigate medical treatments and technology. The doctors also show you how to "try this at home" experiments for viewers to participate in.

In addition, Drs Chris and Xand follow pediatric accident and emergency personnel and patients at Alder Hey Children's Hospital and Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and the Liverpool hospital.

The doctors also join West Midlands Ambulance Service and Midlands Air Ambulance "rapid response teams on the road" and in patient's homes as they help with medical emergencies that arise.
