Introduction to the Body: Landscapes and Interiors

An introduction to human biology—the subject of that most fascinating human study, ourselves. The program shows a wide range of human activities, and how the body enables us to live in diverse climates and perform diverse activities. Extraordinary close-up filming over the body’s exterior and in its interior causes surface differences to fade away and enables viewers to see the immensely complex and interactive systems that constitute the living body. (26 minutes)
