Description

The Human Body

From Wikipedia

The Human Body is a seven part documentary series, first shown on 20 May 1998 on BBC One and presented by medical scientist Robert Winston. A co-production between the BBC and The Learning Channel, the series looks at the mechanics and emotions of the human body from birth to death.

The series was nominated for numerous awards, winning several, including three BAFTA awards, four RTS awards and a Peabody Award.

Described as the BBC's "first major TV series on human biology", it took over two years to make and aimed to be the definitive set of programmes on the human body. The series was produced by Richard Dale and presented by Professor Robert Winston, a fertility expert.

The series used a variety of different techniques to present the topics being discussed, including endoscopes and computer graphics for internal shots, time-lapse photography to show the growth of hair and nails, magnetic resonance imaging and scanning electron microscopy.

    "Life Story" – Every second, a world of miraculous microscopic events take place within the body.
    "An Everyday Miracle" – The drama of conception activates the most sophisticated life support machine on earth.
    "First Steps" – In four years, the new-born child learns every survival skill.
    "Raging Teens" – The hormone-driven roller-coaster otherwise known as adolescence!
    "Brain Power" – The adult human brain is the most complicated - and mysterious - object in the universe.
    "As Time Goes By" – is far more complex - and fascinating - than mere decline.
    "The End of Life" – Even in death, the body reveals remarkable secrets.
