Top Notch 3D Technology
Using the latest 3D photography these films shed new light on the miracle of us. We witness revolutionary operations on our internal organs, inside our eyes and under our skin. We see tumours removed from the kidney and the brain in a way that has never been seen before. We discover how powerful new microscopy and stereoscopic endoscopes, breakthrough procedures and even bionic limbs are rewriting the rulebook. We see how we are under attack from everything around us. We hear the involving and dramatic stories from people who have amazing conditions and experiences. Packed full of mind-blowing images and unforgettable ‘firsts’, this is a fresh and original two part documentary that reveals the Human Body in stereoscopic 3D.
3D as a subject too
This is not just a programme in 3D but also shows how 3D is being used to repair the body. State of the art robots and 3D cameras are being used to remove cancerous tumors from a kidney. In a TV first, I, Human goes inside the operation and watches the kidney being repaired. And there is the ground breaking 3D endoscope allowing surgeon Theodore Schwartz to go into the brain through the nasal cavity and perform surgery inside the head, removing the tumor through the patient’s nose.
"I, Human" is produced by TouchProductions.
