Very good overview of particle physics; however, not linked to the human body...
...as the title led me to believe. I was expecting a documentary on matter in the context of our bodies. That is not the case at all. This is simply a review of the modern understanding of matter. The first half of the doc looks at the discovery of the components of atoms, the fundamental forces, antimatter, and briefly considers the issue of the "particle zoo". The second half of the doc is dedicated to the search for Higgs' boson, and CERN's and Fermilab's race towards this goal. Overall, the summary is clear and comprehensive.
The visuals are excellent, with impressive representations of the universal forces and subatomic particles. (And some admittedly lame 2D drawings.) It is also very nice to see the people at the forefront of the science discussed, and catch a glimpse at the colliders' insides. Great doc; solid 8/10.
