Storyline

From our first cry to our last breath, our bodies undergo a continuous second-by-second transformation. Every move we make and every outside stimulus triggers a reaction through the skin, bones, organs, muscles and cells. We breathe, on average, 700 million breaths in a lifetime; an adult skeleton is replaced every seven to 10 years; we shed as many as 30,000 dead skin cells every minute; and the food we eat travels 30 feet (9 meters) on its journey through our bodies. Now, the National Geographic Channel (NGC) takes you beneath the skin to reveal how our bodies evolve from birth to old age, and the amazing biological systems we need to thrive. From the producers of NGC's critically acclaimed In the Womb series, Inside the Living Body traces one "everywoman's story", using milestones to examine the everyday workings of a living, functioning body in ways not seen on television until now. Cutting-edge miniature endoscopic HD cameras delve deep inside the mouth, throat, heart, lungs, ... Written by Anonymous

Not as good as I expected
6 January 2008 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

I study medicine, so I figured this documentary might be a good tool to enhance what I have already learned by watching it visually. I have to say that it was not as good as I expected.

For common people who have no knowledge about the human body, this documentary may be quite impressive. However, it basically repeated what I have already learned in medical school. It is certainly very basic. Some of the scenes were repeated under different subjects. Some of the scenes were quite impressive if they were shot inside of real human bodies. Some of the scenes might be confusing to the common people. For example, it showed the inside of a fallopian tube without showing its actual location in a female body. For people who have never heard of that phrase before, they might get lost easily.

So if you just got in a medical school, this documentary is good for you to get a general idea of the human body. If you already finished your first two years of medical education, this one would be too easy for you.

One last thing, the total length should be 95 minutes, not 120 minutes as listed on here.
