This episode of PBS's award-winning science series Nova focuses on the remarkable process of human reproduction, from conception to birth. Based on the ground-breaking work of Swedish photographer and researcher Lennart Nilsson, The Miracle Of Life uses special microscopic photographic techniques to offer an unusual glimpse of a largely unseen world as a child grows and develops within the mother's body, from the point that the ovary releases its egg to the birth of a baby nine months later. The Miracle Of Life was first aired December 15, 1983.
