First to Last [electronic resource]

Starting with a water birth shot in slow motion and featuring a stunning graphics sequence that goes inside the chambers of the heart, this program focuses on the countless small miracles the human body performs minute by minute in order to stay alive. Viewers learn how an infant's first breath leads to a rewiring of its entire circulatory system - and meet a diver who can hold his breath for up to nine minutes, a man who can swim in glacial lakes so cold they would kill a normal person, and a woman who has lived on a diet of crackers for ten years. The video also demonstrates what happens when the body finally fails.

Up [electronic resource]: To Boldly Go

The natural home of our species is at sea level. The higher we go, the less oxygen there is in the air and the harder we find it to survive. In this program, doctor of extreme medicine Kevin Fong conducts a series of experiments to determine how the human body responds to altitude. He climbs one of the tallest mountains in the Alps and subjects himself to a sudden depressurization at 25,000 feet.

Bones [electronic resource]

In this program, Dr. Alice Roberts charts the advance from Australopithecus to Homo erectus and beyond to demonstrate what the modern skeleton reveals about human evolution. Examining the traits of chimps and an intriguing Sahelanthropus hominid fossil, she also discusses the role of bipedalism in the emergence of Homo sapiens. Along the way, viewers learn what running shoes to wear, the purpose of armpit hair, and whether back pain is an inevitable consequence of simply standing up.

How Is Science Impacting Our Physical Performance? [electronic resource]

This episode examines how science is changing the way we look at physical endurance and the discoveries that could change the future for the better. Viewers meet a scientist who is pursuing research into the differences that carbohydrate fuel can make to soccer players-in particular the benefits of carbohydrates ingested during a game. The results are intriguing and lead to an exciting discovery regarding how we'd previously viewed the way our bodies work. A part of Ever Wondered? (Series 1).

Brains [electronic resource]

Drawing on research into social politics among chimpanzees, the cognitive development of children, and the ancient tools that have been found littered across the Rift Valley, in this program Dr. Alice Roberts explores how Homo sapiens developed such large brains - and asks why we are the only species of our kind left on the planet today. She also discusses how caring for large-brained offspring has shaped civilization, and the evolutionary adaptation that allows grandmothers to help raise their grandchildren.

Keep Your Cells in Shape [electronic resource]

People who exercise have better health and live longer, but scientists can't fully explain the mechanics of this. This ABC News report looks at a small scientific study that found 50-year-old adults who regularly exercised vigorously - such as marathon runners or endurance athletes - appeared biologically younger than healthy people the same age who were not active.

The Future of Our Body: 1 [electronic resource]

As scientific discoveries continue, will we one day produce a flawless human specimen? We already have breast implants from body tissue and facial surgery using organic materials to make us look younger or correct deficiencies resulting from diseases or accidents. Paraplegic patients learn how to walk assisted by a robot and prosthesis that react like a healthy arm are already available. The dream of human perfection may soon become a reality?

TEDTalks [electronic resource]: Peter Saul - Let's Talk About Dying

We can't control if we'll die, but we can "occupy death," in the words of Dr. Peter Saul. In this TEDTalk, he calls on us to make clear our preferences for end-of-life care - and suggests two questions for starting the conversation. Over the past 35 years, Saul has been intimately involved in the dying process of more than 4,000 patients and is passionate about improving the ways we die.

The Senses [electronic resource]: A Horizon Guide

Touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste: the five senses help define what it means to be human. In Horizon Guide to Senses we see how our senses gather millions of details about the world around us, sending our brains a constant stream of information. This input is our only link with the outside world and an important part of human survival.

Expanding Universe [electronic resource]

Amidst the rich natural history of the United States, Professor Brian Cox encounters the astonishing creatures that reveal how the senses evolved. Every animal on Earth experiences the world in a different way, using a unique suite of senses to detect its physical environment. Tracing the evolution of these mechanisms is a story that takes us through life's journey-from single-celled organisms to more complex, sentient beings. Brian finds that over the course of 3.8 billion years, the senses have driven life in new directions and may, ultimately, have led to our own curiosity and intelligence.
