Fight for Life, a six-part series, uses computer-generated imagery (CGI) and specially shot material to reveal the fight for survival from inside the human body.
Each episode focuses on a different life stage showing the dramatic story of how the human body changes from birth, through to adulthood and old age, and the way in which it reacts when its defences are threatened.
The Final Years
Fight for Life shows how the body, alongside modern medicine, can fight against injury and illness despite its slowed responses.
Vera has been rushed to A&E after a fall at home. She has black circles around each eye, a typical sign of head injury, and seems confused. The programme follows her as she's rushed to x-ray to assess the damage.
Len arrives at Birmingham Heartland Hospital A&E with severe stomach pains. Tests reveal a necrotic bowel - the blood supply has been cut off and is killing tissue. He needs urgent surgery. His body is already coping with epilepsy, arthritis, a slow heartbeat and vascular disease. Will his body pull through, or will he lose his fight for life?
Geoffrey is rushed to A&E with intense heart pain. The cause is a tiny clot, not much bigger than a grain of rice, in one of the blood vessels feeding his heart. Cholestrol is contsructing his blood flow. Watch as surgeons fight to save his life after a series of heart attacks.
