Still image from The Living Body: Growth And Change

Uses the fascinating setting of a circus to provide the analogy for growth. A magician creating the illusion of multiplying balls introduces microphotography, showing how cells divide and multiply. Shows how bones are continually being built and destroyed and, in a spectacular sequence of time-lapse photography, actually captures a tooth growing-from the moment it first appears out of the gum until it falls out. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) English subtitles, (3) English subtitles in a black box, (4) closed captions.
