The Human Body
Investigate the inner and outer workings of the human body using scanning electron microscopes, thermal imaging, medical computer graphics and real-life images. Live the incredible story of a single day in the lifetime of you and me. Witness the miracle of life from the development of a fetus inside a mother’s womb, to birth, puberty and finally adulthood. Follow a tomato on its journey to the biological blender of the stomach. Travel through the bloodstream and into the chambers of the pumping heart. Embark on a voyage down the ear canal to discover how your brain makes sense of sounds. See how the human body’s systems and organs work together as you get a glimpse into the amazing things that take place beneath the skin to keep us ticking.
The Human Body is a presentation of The Learning Channel and BBC Worldwide of a Discovery Pictures / BBC co-production in association with the Maryland Science Center and the Science Museum, London with major funding provided by the National Science Foundation.
