Absolutely brilliant
21 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This television series hosted by Robert Winston is all about the human body. Although the human body is exceptionally detailed and the show can't hope to explain everything, it does a great job of showing the various stages of the human life including case studies on pregnancy, birth, adolescence and death. Robert Winston is a great presenter and the program amazingly manages to be good for everybody - I've known children, medical students and those with no medical background at all who watched this program, and they all enjoyed it and were able to understand it. Highly recommended, definitely watch it if it's on television. I believe it's also available on video.
