"Over your lifetime you undergo an extraordinary change - no other animal on earth goes through such a dramatic metamorphosis. In this programme, Chris and Xand van Tulleken explore the latest understanding of how we all grow.

They uncover the reason our childhood is longer than any other creature on Earth and reveal the communities of microbes - our microbiome - that we cultivate throughout our lives.

They uncover the mysterious trigger for our transformation from child to adult and, for the first time, show the remarkable spark of life that is emitted when sperm and egg first meet. "

    It is an excellent series IMO.  The animations are good too, and very educational.  There is also cutting edge video of actual cellular level processes taking place, which is fascinating.  The bike riding skills alone in part three "Learn", are certainly worth watching.  Worth making the time for, as is the program (linked in an earlier post) on the brain, and the one on the human hand too.

    You may gather that I am fascinated by the incredible machinery we all possess, that intricate dance of a trillion cells working in concert to enable the experience we call consciousness to emerge.  Utterly astonishing.

    The learning process particularly entrances me, it defines much of what it means to be human, and an individual.  It also underpins that quest for musicianship, which is relevant to many of us here.

    I think @Bygone_Tones is just jealous as his deal with YT and Marshall didn't earn him any money when he posted "

    Youtubers play a dimed Marshall

    Now IMHO, this is very relevant to us all on here, from the fundamental importance of rhythm, to our ability to learn new motor skills.

    Oh... and no, I am not earning a bean from any of this, but then you all knew that, didn't you ?  

    I do hope that a better understanding of how we are designed and function helps guide us all towards better learning, a better understanding of our health and the need to protect it (and, oh boy, did I get a wakeup call on that score recently!), and that understanding in turn, helps some of us to gain more fulfilment in life, in whatever way that may be.  

    Given, with generosity of spirit and enthusiasm for life, enjoy !

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0990vnr/the-human-body-secrets-of-your-life-revealed-series-1-3-learn

    "This programme explores the way our experiences shape our minds and bodies as we make the journey from the most helpless to the most sophisticated organism on earth. Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tullekan uncover how we develop new skills - whether riding a bike or learning to walk.

    They reveal the unexpected link between our heartbeat and our ability to talk. And they show, for the very first time, how memories are formed in our brains, and how our experiences continue to change our bodies and even our genes themselves throughout our lives."
