This compelling documentary unlocks the stories of people born 'intersex' - neither entirely male or female - and asks whether our traditional understanding of gender is correct. Insights from people with these conditions, and the medical teams at the forefront of treating them, reveal how we all develop in the womb - and that one in 500 of us is born with an intersex condition. This scientific yet sensitive and emotional programme challenges the assumption that gender is binary, arguing that men and women merely represent particular points of a biological continuum. But is western society ready to accept that 'male' and 'female' are tenuous and imprecise biological concepts?

There is an unexplored planet in the Solar System. A strange world of bizarre creatures locked in a fight for survival. This planet is the human body and it's teeming with unknown ecosystems. Our bodies are home to a trillion cells that are not us - but are very much the making of us. Bugs cling to our skin and grasp onto our hair. They live inside our gut, in our blood and even in our brain. They determine our health, body shape, mood and even our behaviour. We are super-organisms, part of an interconnected web of life. This hidden world is brought to life through fascinating personal accounts, breakthroughs in scientific insights and by the use of the latest imaging technologies.

This episode looks at the issue of body image and how it affects most of us in some way or another. In today's society even healthy living is taken to excess. Fuelled by the admiration heaped on minuscule pop stars and supermodels and superfit athletes and actors, in the Western world slim equals beautiful. Body image has become such an obsession that people follow dangerous diets, age their joints and muscles through obsessive exercise and spend much of their lives worrying about not being the right shape or size.
