Viewer discretion is advised. Contains clinically explicit language and demonstrations.
Follow a set of fraternal twins in utero (as their sexual characteristics begin to emerge and diverge) as revolutionary imaging techniques reveal these transformations for the first time. Watch as men and women mature and push their bodies to athletic extremes to demonstrate how biological differences impact physical performance and even mental agility. However, our differences have evolved not to answer challenges in athletic contests, but to provide advantage in the game of life.
This series takes the viewer on a journey through the human body. New techniques film the interior workings of the body in action. Each program matches the interior process to the way it affects our everyday lives.
By their very nature, sports competitions push the human body to its limits. This program examines four bodily systems-skeletal, muscular, respiratory, and circulatory-to demonstrate how our anatomy enables us to be physically active.
This nine-part series uses physiologic animations and illustrations, microscopic imaging, expert commentary, and footage of the body in motion to provide a thorough overview of the amazing human machine. 9-part series, 20-22 minutes each.
