Summary:
Death By Design looks at the interaction of cells, and how communication between cells leads to apoptosis, or programmed cell death. It addresses the method and reasons for communications between cells: where to go, what to do when they get there, and when to die. It is important that cells die. In this illuminating primer on the whys and wherefores of biological processes, programmed cell death is explained as

Abstract:

Death By Design looks at the interaction of cells, and how communication between cells leads to apoptosis, or programmed cell death. It addresses the method and reasons for communications between cells: where to go, what to do when they get there, and when to die. It is important that cells die. In this illuminating primer on the whys and wherefores of biological processes, programmed cell death is explained as essential to our health, which is one that consists of microscopic organisms working in unison for the betterment of the whole.

The Life & Times of Life & Times is an engaging and educational film addressing the biology of aging. Why do we age? It seems to contradict the basic tenant of natural selection: keeping that which works. Evolutionarily, life is centered on reproduction. Once that has been accomplished, nature has no interest in why, how, or if anything follows. Biologists tackling the problem are learning how genetically alterations can lead to extended lifespans, altering the way that cells respond to time--or perhaps only the perception that time passes, rather than being the driving force of individuation and growth. The insights are provocative, and the subject itself should be of interest to anyone interested in why we live and die.
