Product Description

Product Description

Michael Mosley embarks on an astonishing voyage through the world's most complex organism--you.

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.

I've just finished watching this entire series on iPlayer - took me 2 sittings.

I enjoyed it so much as soon as I finished the last program I came on here and pre-ordered it to add to my growing collection of similar programs (Life On Earth, The Living Planet, The Wonders Of The Solar System, etc etc)

It really doesn't hurt to be reminded again and again how precious and wonderful you, your existence in this world and the existence of this amazing universe we are part of actually are, and is something the BBC seem particularly good at achieving. This series is another such triumph in my humble opinion.

I have nothing but admiration and respect for Gerald and his family for showing, simply, how much a part of living dying actually is. The moment when the 8 year old indian girl see's her face again, after surgery to fix her cleft palate, is something that makes you proud to be part of the human race. The explanations and imagery around simple things like breathing, conception, balance - all outstanding. Even the elements that made me cringe a bit (the guy who gets new hands for instance) at least left me thinking hard about how far we go / should go to preserve life and its quality, and the understated example showing the differences for the pregnant woman in Africa against the one having triplets over here was a particularly clever bit of programming.

Uplifting, awe inspiring, amazing, thought provoking, informative and entertaining. If you want something to balance the "horror of humankind" that is all too often pushed on us by the mass media, simply put, buy this ! (and no, I'm not on commission lol)

I have to thank my sister for introducing this series to me, I have enjoyed every second of it.

There are a lot of detailed computer animated scenes to show you what happens within the body so you can get a good idea of what happens, there are some scenes which some people may find "disturbing" obviously unintended to upset anyone, but the fact is this is life and this is what happens, you can't just hide yourself to what can happen.

Nevertheless this series is extremely educational, with a lot of facts that I didn't even know until now, I would recommend this for older children, but would recommend parents to watch through it first to make sure it is 100% suitable for their kids age, if you think they will be able to handle some scenes I think this DVD would be very beneficial to their education.

Top stars from me!

A truly wonderful combination! This programme is simultaneously uplifting and educational. It also has stunningly crafted images.

I am a doctor and I know most of the facts presented. However, the programme still captivated me with Mosley's gripping presentation.

What would I like to have known before I bought it? Michael Mosley is an excellent presenter, it is well written, easily understandable and holds your attention. Be aware though that it is only limited scientifically and perhaps for some tastes there's a little too much of the personal detail of those involved -- but that's just a personal preference. Also be aware that the over sentimental music can be a little too much - but again that's subjective. The computer generated imagery is first class and all the essential facts are very clearly presented. I would heartily recommend it to anyone providing they were aware of the above.

Great graphics bring the basics taught in Anatomy & Physiology books to life. Good use of terminology, would help those with no previous knowledge as an introduction, those who haven't done any biology for a while and as additional revision for those studying (For Scottish Qualifications I would recommend this for Intermediate 2, Standard Grade at Credit or those doing Higher Human Biology along with their course text. Even those in 1st year nursing would appreciate it). Would recommend as a visual aid to learning. Excellent.

I watched all three episodes and they were amazing!

They give you a very in dehpt view on the human body and how we survive and live our lives each day. I was deeply moved by the fact that they filmed a very elderly man right up until his dying breath. I cried, but thought how wonderful & beautiful it was to see as we are all going to die and to see that it really can be as simple as closing your eyes surrounded by your family gave me great comfort.
Inside the human body takes you on a journey one which we all share and I for one feel extremely fortunate to have seen it.

Bought this as a gift for my partner - who loves human anatomy.

We watched it together and thought it was great. Showing how complex the body actually is. Very informative and done in an interesting way.

Great gift idea and worth the watch.
