Researchers in Hampshire have been trying to unlock the secrets of honey's well-known healing properties.
The team at the University of Southampton have been using the knowledge they've found to tackle serious infections. Their work with honey could even prove to be a valuable tool in the fight against the most resistant superbugs, such as MRSA.
The report by our Social Affairs Correspondent Christine Alsford does contain an image of a nasty wound.
The interviewees are Roger Backhouse; Doctor Matthew Dryden Consultant, Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust; and Mr Rami Salib Associate Professor of Rhinology at the University of Southampton's Faculty of Medicine.
One in ten women who undergo a Caesarean birth will develop an infection. In the most severe cases it can be life-threatening.
But new research carried out at hospitals in Hampshire shows that applying a new type of honey to the surgery area - could reduce infections dramatically.
It's a development that could save the NHS millions - and save hundreds of lives too. Christine Alsford's report contains minor scenes of surgery.
