[edit] Andreas Vesalius

In 1537, the 23-year-old Andreas Vesalius became the most famous anatomist in Europe.

In the 17th century in Holland, anatomy became the cutting edge of medical science, inspiring the great artists of the age like Rembrandt to produce the most beautiful anatomical paintings yet created. Adam Rutherford travels to The Hague and Amsterdam to find out what it was that drew Rembrandt to anatomy and why dissecting bodies was thought a suitable subject for high art.

[edit] The Hunter Brothers

Dr Adam Rutherford investigates the story of the two brilliant but controversial Hunter brothers, who transformed both medicine and art in 18th-century Britain. Their belief that students could only learn anatomy by carrying out dissections created an unprecedented demand for dead bodies - as well as a market for the growing trade of body-snatching from graveyards.

The world's most famous study of the human body is Gray's Anatomy. The accuracy of the descriptions and the stark beauty of the illustrations made it an instant bestseller.
