“The Human Body” - the IMAX version
- By: Navin Chohan
The now ubiquitous Professor Robert Winston became a household commodity when he narrated The Human Body, the show that literally took viewers into parts that others could not reach. Where else could you see inside a full stomach or watch blood cells flowing in arteries? These were amazing images to medics and the viewing public alike.
Now the “incredible story of life” is back “on a screen the height of five double decker buses.” Yes, The Human Body has now made it to the massive IMAX format and, it has to be said, the result is quite impressive.
This release represents the end of a three year collaboration between the BBC, the Science Museum in London, Discovery Pictures, and the Learning Channel, all funded by the National Science Foundation in the United States. The large format version is in fact a whole new 45 minute film with no footage used
