Have scientists uncovered the secret to immortality? Can meditation stop people wanting to self-harm? And are light-skinned people really the mutants of dark-skinned people?
These questions, and many more, will be answered in Secrets of the Human Body, an innovative cross-platform event being staged by SBS over the coming months.
Secrets of the Human Body will be based around five thought-provoking and compelling Australian-made science documentaries, screening on consecutive Sunday nights on SBSONE from December 9.
Complementing these documentaries will be a series of innovative events involving the filmmakers, scientists and the public, developed in association with the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus), a newly-established science organisation.
