Inside the Human Body

Produced as an accompaniment to the linear "Inside the Human Body" programme, this is the fascinating story of how the production team behind the 4-part series brought together the latest scientific research and the most innovative computer technology to create never-before-seen worlds for this BBC One landmark series.

In the first episode 'Creation', the team reveal how they brought to life some extraordinary scientific revelations, including the spectacular ‘firework display’ that was set off at the moment of your conception, and how they used scans of a developing foetus to produce a unique animation which shows how your face self-assembled in the womb.
The second episode 'First to Last', shows how the team set about illustrating the magic moment when your heart first began to beat, just 3 weeks after conception, and how they had to apply some artistic licence so they could take the viewer on a journey inside the miniature world of your blood vessels.

In the next instalment 'Building Your Brain', it took months of scientific research to gather the information they needed to bring to life two of the most complex systems in the body: the workings of your middle ear and the complex and wondrous world of your retina.  
And in the last of the series 'Hostile World', we discover how the recurring hero of the series, the phagocyte, was transformed from medical images into a realistic 3D character – culminating in a giant battle as it defends your body from invaders. Also, how the music for series brought drama and spectacle to events taking place on a microscopic level.
