The Ultimate Journey

1996 NR

Documenting the journey from conception to birth, this Nova presentation uses the microphotography of Lennart Nilsson to peer inside the womb, revealing both our links to other species and the genetic twists of fate that set us apart. From the emergence of the first tiny feature -- whether it's a human hand or a pig's foot -- to the miracle of birth, the film demonstrates how the development of the human embryo harkens back to the dawn of life.
