Short Circuit - Homeostasis
Remember Leah Betts ?
She was a girl who died a horrible death from taking one ecstasy tablet at her own 18th birthday party.
Temperature, body fluids, heart rate and breathing are all regulated without us having to think about it when we are
well. This is known as homeostasis. Pushed too far homeostasis breaks down.
This programme demonstrates the dangers of experimenting with drugs and shows how even a small amount can have a
deadly effect on the body.
Transmitted as part of the BBC Learning Zone shown during the night to enable block recordings to be made for
schools. These programmes for science were billed as 'Life Processes and Living Things' and were taken from different
series as follows.
Programme 1: Science Zone - Horses for Courses
Programme 2: Seeing Through Science - Gene Genie
Programme 3: Short Circuit - Genetics
Programme 4: Short Circuit - Message in a Bottle
Programme 5: Short Circuit - Fatal Addiction
Programme 6: Short Circuit - Homeostasis
Each programme is numbered and has a countdown clock in the corner as a guide to where you are in the programme.
I'm uploading them separately as they obviously aren't originally from the same series.
Incidentally this is my 100th upload on the Box. Thanks to everyone for appreciating all the hard work.
