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 the ovary releases it 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 had this extraordinary process been filmed! Bonus DVD! NOVA: Life's First Feelings The emotional development of babies is an exciting, ever-unfolding story, and nurturing this development often becomes a major concern for parents. Are infants born with programmed facial expressions? Do these expressions have evolutionary and adaptive significance? How much emotional development depends upon family, environment, and culture? NOVA reveals the surprising emotional capabilities of newborns and very young children.
