Nine will keep documentaries in the 8:30pm Thursday slot, with Inside The Human Body to follow Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice.
This BBC series reveals the workings of the body and was narrated in the UK by Michael Mosley. Controversially, it included one episode in which an 84 year old man took his last breath, surrounded by family at his hospital bedside.
Coincidentally, Mosley also appears in Into the Mind which begins tonight on SBS ONE.
In the premiere on Thursday, June 23, at 8.30pm on Channel Nine we follow the progress of a couple who are expecting triplets, from the first 4D pregnancy scan to the dramatic birth. We also meet a woman expecting her 16th baby, and the oldest conjoined twins in the world.
Throughout this absorbing series viewers are taken on an adventure inside and outside the human body which guarantees you will never think of yourself in the same way again.
Using breathtaking computer-generated imagery, each program begins inside a different human microcosm, providing a unique insight into our bodies and taking us on an astonishing journey through space and time to show how different parts of our anatomy have evolved.
Extraordinary scientific images of the body rarely seen outside the laboratory reveal its most unusual and bizarre workings in minute detail. This is an incredible world in miniature, where our day-to-day human activities pale in comparison to the intensive work rate of even the smallest cell in the body and the tiniest clusters of body hair resemble dense forest.
The body’s almost infinite ability to adapt and surprise is illustrated by remarkable people all over the world whose bodies allow them to do amazing things, live in fascinating places, and push their physiology to the limit.
From the fundamental organs that keep us alive to the development of the brain, movement and communication,Inside The Human Body is the most comprehensive, definitive series ever about the highly evolved machine that makes the human being the most successful animal on Earth.
It begins June 23rd on Nine.
