Summary:
Each minute, all over the world, a baby is born. An everyday occurrence, yet each birth is the culmination of one of nature's most complex, mysterious, and seemingly miraculous processes.

A dramatic breakthrough in science and cinematography, The Miracle of Life takes you on an incredible voyage through the human body as a new life begins. World-renowned Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson presents a spectacular look at a microscopic world of beautiful colors and forms deep inside ourselves.

See the egg as it is released by the ovary and follow the sperm from its early development through ejaculation and then on its perilous journey toward the egg. With magnification of up to half a million times the actual size, you can see exactly what happens at the moment of conception. After the sperm fertilizes the egg, the camera follows the development of the single new cell into an embryo, then fetus, until finally, a baby is born. Never before has this extraordinary process been filmed!

Special DVD features include: Access to the award-winning NOVA Web site; chapter search; English audiotrack; subtitles (CC).
