BBC Needs Help With Natural History of Human Body
The BBC are making a series of programmes about the Human Body.
They will illustrate what science can currently tell us about how
the human body works and how it evolved. If you have research
that you think would help us to visualise human biological
processes in a new and enlightening way, including hearing

I would love to see examples of images created by new
technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound,
computer analysis of X-ray and PET scans. Also film or video
images, no matter how old, which show the processes of our
bodies. We want to illustrate human life from conception,
through foetal development, into babyhood, childhood, before and
after puberty, the ageing process, death and beyond. Examples of
the moments we might capture on film are:
1 The role of the vestibular apparatus in equilibrium.
2 The movement and function of sensory hair cells.
3 MRI or PET scan images that compare cognitive processes, such
as the difference in the way a professional musician and a non
expert listen to music.
