Shot in HD using the latest in 3-D graphics, medical imaging and cadaver specimens, see the human body's skeletal system revealed in ways never seen before.
The 206 bones of the human skeleton are a miracle of bioengineering. Lightweight and incredibly strong, our bones give us the ability to walk upright, freeing our hands for precise manipulation of objects. See how the skeleton anchors the muscles and protects our essential organs: the heart, lungs and brain. And learn how the bones themselves are chemical factories producing our red blood cells. Join world-renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman as he guides you through the physiology, anatomy and diseases of the skeletal system.

"classes studying human anatomy will find this series useful in providing information about basic anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and mechanics of the various body systems. Heart surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman describes the anatomy and function of each body system through live-action video, photos, medical imaging, and realistic 3-D animation. The evolutionary development of each body system is also discussed. Cadaver dissections are used to point out structures and organs associated with each system.... The educator's guide contains an extensive vocabulary list and a transcript of the program. Closed captioning and Spanish subtitles are optional."- School Library Journal
