Part 1: Broken Bones Bones are tough--tough enough even to survive the average childhood. Meet Lisa Mason, a lively 11-year-old who crashes her bike and breaks an arm. Travel inside her bones and see how these honeycombed structures of calcium, phosphate and flexible collagen withstand pressure and heal themselves when necessary. Part 2: Heart Attack An intricate system of vessels, arteries, muscles and electrical impulses, the cardiovascular system keeps oxygen-rich blood pumping through our bodies. But what happens when that system is challenged by fatty cholesterol plaque? Journey inside 45-year old John Palmer's body to experience a heart attack up close. Part 3: Trauma The human body is an amazing machine, able to repair itself under most circumstances. What if those injuries are severe or go undetected by medical professionals? Learn how healing becomes a team effort on the parts of the patient and the doctors.

Only available in the US.
