BBC4's Dissected uncovers the incredible anatomy of the human body

Think your body is just a waste of oxygen? Think again! New cadaver-probing doc Dissected reveals the wonder of humanity layer by layer

The reason babies are so pathetic, if the gestation periods of other mammals are used as a measure, is because all humans are born prematurely. To walk upright without lumbering about like a plate of mince stuffed into a couple of toilet roll tubes, human pelvises had to narrow. So as not to bifurcate their mums with gigantic heads housing the huge, pulsating brains that make us human, babies adapted too, squirming out early like undercooked ratpups.

I learned that fact from watching a TV documentary. In this soggy dribble of toast and council tax some people refer to as "life", slopping fact soup into your skull is a salve. Documentaries about planets, lava, tights, cat Aids, escalators, offer a kind of comfort, like a piping-hot cup of morphine. »
