Inside The Human Body (2011)
Monday 9th May 2011
Michael Mosley (The Story of Science: Power, Proof and Passion) embarks on an astonishing voyage through the world's most complex organism - you. He brings to life the very latest scientific advances by combining spectacular CGI with fascinating human stories when Inside The Human Body is released on DVD from 2entertain on 30th May 2011.
Inside The Human Body takes us deep under our skin where we are dwarfed by even the smallest cell, where blood vessels become vast cathedrals and the tiniest cluster of cilia becomes an expansive forest.
Our body's almost infinite ability to adapt and surprise is illustrated by the stories of remarkable characters whose bodies allow them to do amazing things, live in incredible places and push their physiology to the limits. Spectacular photography shows human behaviour in super slow motion, revealing elements of ourselves that we are completely unaware of.
Inside The Human Body starts with the story of our creation, swimming with millions of sperm on their long and dangerous journey to fertilise a single egg and discovering the ingenious ways a woman's body takes control to select the very best.
Across the series viewers are invited to take an astonishing adventure inside and outside the human body looking at the fundamental organs that keep us alive, the development of the brain, locomotion and communication, and the story of our immune system in a way which guarantees that you will never think of yourself in the same way again.
