[edit] Information

Life on Us is a two-part documentary series commissioned by SBS. The series explores the world of the human body, and gives us an up close and personal look at the parasites, bacteria and viruses that call our bodies ‘home’ (whether you care to admit it or not and whether you like it or not). Very up close and personal, including a few seconds of footage of a real birth to explain how we ended up covered in microbes in the first place. These microbes have shaped our evolution and changed the course of human history. All of these microscopic residents determine our health, our life expectancy, our physique and even our behavior.Our hidden worlds will be illuminated by revolutionary special effects that combine world-first moving image electron microscopy with super-macro filming techniques, making the invisible, visible.

[edit] Your Private Wildlife

Focuses on our skin, our armpits, belly buttons.We are not alone. We are home to a trillion cells that are not our own, but are very much the making of us. Both on us and inside us live bacteria, viruses, protozoans, fungi, worms, lice and mites that we carry throughout our lives. To say that we are in a minority in our own body is an understatement. Our ‘private wildlife’ keeps us healthy, sometimes makes us ill and even changes our behavior.

[edit] Superhuman

Takes us into the world of digestion and its amazingly complex environment.Our health, body shape, mood and even our evolution are determined by the unseen life forms that swarm throughout our bodies. There are worms in your bowels, bacteria in your mouth, fungi in your lungs and even viruses in your DNA.The combined genetic information of all these bugs is more than 150 times greater than our own genes. Their cells outnumber our own by 10 to 1. This collective menagerie is called the microbiome, and in a very real sense, it is the making of us all.
