Abstract:

In this tour of the human body, Dr. Alice Roberts introduces viewers to the key organs. She dissects animal organs - similar in form and function to human ones - and explains how we can hold on to our health and live to a ripe old age. Dr. Roberts puts three rugby players through their paces to find out how their kidneys cope under the stress of dehydration; and June, who has been in dialysis for four years, speaks from her own experience with failing kidneys. Her sister, Lorraine, offers her own kidney, and when it is found to be a match, the program follows the live kidney transplant operation.
