Large format cinema has explored all the mysterious locations of our human world: except one.
Films have journeyed into space, deep under the oceans, to the highest peaks and travelled at
the speed of a racing car. But the most interesting voyage that could be charted - and the one
which science can tell us so much about - has just been made, the voyage into the human body itself.
Three years in the making, this film reveals THE HUMAN BODY in a way never seen before – telling
the incredible story of a single day in the lifetime of the you and me. From morning to night we
live through many miracles - from the moment we first open our eyes - burning cells from the
surface of our retinas and giving us, each morning, a fresh set of sensors with which to view
the day - to the last rumblings of our evening meal late at night as it is turned into the raw
materials with which we will face tomorrow. In astonishing detail, we explore the daily biological
processes that go on without our control and often without our even noticing.
Finding a way to capture the magic and wonder of human biology for a screen seven stories tall
required a cinematic inventiveness that was anything but routine. Co-produced by Discovery Pictures
and the BBC, THE HUMAN BODY incorporates groundbreaking computer graphics with stunning real-life
images to create a day in the life of a human body.
