Human Body: Pushing the Limits takes you across continents and introduces you to people who have pushed their bodies to the max. Using CGI technology and high-tech camera work, see their physical ordeals in vivid detail both externally and internally.
Sight is the king of the senses. More than 80% of what we know of the world comes through our eyes – without it we're lost. See our vision system, in living color, from the inside out.
The human body is engineered for strength, power and endurance. Learn how bone is as sturdy as concrete but flexible enough to resist breaking.
Below the skin's surface are the antennae that allow us to sense the world around us. Learn how this vital layer is the gateway to the original information superhighway – the nervous system.
Uncover the most powerful organ in the natural world – the human brain. Learn how this central processing unit generates as many electrical impulses in a single day as all the telephones in the world put together.
Buy the Human Body Pushing The Limits DVD set for a riveting look inside our bodies to explore what makes us run, walk, see, smell, and exist every day.
