The sequel to Lennart Nilsson’s 1983 classic The Miracle of Life, with new information on DNA, genes, and chromosomes, this program’s microphotography looks into the complex mechanics of human conception and gestation. Advanced technology and computer simulations allow amazed viewers to witness the journey of the egg leaving the ovary, its fertilization by the sperm cell, and its meiosis into an embryo. Each stage of fetal development is highlighted as viewers follow an expectant couple for nine months—from morning sickness to the hospital bed. Note: scene of live birth. Grades 9 and up. Color. 53 minutes. WGBH/NOVA. ©2001.
