It's everything you wanted to know about the creation of a human life from inception to delivery. This 50-minute documentary follows the nine-month pregnancy of Phillipa and Jeff by using advance photographic cameras and computer-generated images to produce clear and stark images of the birthing process. Produced as part of the BBC's Intimate Universe series, host Robert Winston describes the difficult odds of fertilizing an egg, the various stages of the embryo's development, and the formation of the fetus. The video intermixes interviews of the young British couple with the medical explanations of what is occurring inside Phillipa's womb.
