Embark on an incredible journey as National Geographic traces one "everywoman's" story, using milestones to examine the everyday workings of a living, functioning body in ways not seen before. From the producers of the acclaimed Inside the Womb, Inside the Living Body reveals the life story of the human body from first cry to final breath. With microscopic filmmaking, advanced medical technology, and state-of-the-art cardiac tomography (CT) imaging techniques, Inside the Living Body presents a new and uniquely revealing perspective on how our bodies function, grow, and mature from infancy through puberty, adulthood, and old age. It's the journey of a human lifetime...from the outside in.

National Geographic provides a whole new perspective on the extraordinary processes involved in human life with this primarily internal look at the human life cycle from conception through old age. Thanks to amazing technological advances like camera pills and high-definition endoscopes, physicians and scientists can now obtain actual camera footage and images of body processes as well as create elaborate computer simulations to aid in the research and understanding of how the human body works. This 95-minute exploration of the human body and its processes follows human life from fetal development through the amazing changes demanded of virtually every organ in the hours after birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. It explores the senses and how they work, brain development, digestion, blood circulation, cell division, the hardening and replenishing of bone, puberty, sexuality, childbirth, changes inherent in the aging process, the virtual shutting down of the body at death, and much more. The fascinating camera footage includes everything from the digestive process of food from the mouth through the esophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines, and then to excretion; to blood flow through the heart, veins, and capillaries; and the accumulation of fat in the abdomen and intestines. While the squeamish might proclaim the graphic footage gross, it is incredible, fascinating, and educational.
