The Human Body 2D

 

Overview

Made in partnership with the BBC and narrated by Professor Sir Robert Winston, this film explores biological processes within the human body, featuring all the stunning photography that you’d expect from a BBC production.

The science is seen through a day in the life of a family, including a teenager and his pregnant aunt. Follow the digestion of food from the mouth to the stomach, see body heat, witness sperm racing to an egg, watch hair growing and cringe at a spot being squeezed, all on a screen taller than four double-decker buses.

Booking terms apply.

The film contains short scenes about puberty, human reproduction and birth so it has a PG rating. Teachers making a preview visit can watch the film for just £2 to assess suitability, or contact us for more information.
