Faced with death, we search for meaning and hope. Only a few find the biological explanation sufficient, and in all societies dating back to the Neanderthals, there have been notions and stories of what happens to us after death. In this program we look into how we ritualise death, and how these rituals reveal what we believe happens after we die.

Our health, body shape, mood and even our evolution are determined by the unseen life forms that swarm throughout our bodies. This program looks at the battleground within our bodies and the remarkable new science that is changing our views about health and disease. We take our audience on a safari full of surprises to discover the role that microbes and worms play in our everyday life and the way they've shaped us throughout our evolution. As the series concludes, we realise that the key to our existence is in maintaining the delicate balance between ourselves and all the other species that we've evolved with - both inside and out. We will never again look at our bodies in the same way.

In a ground-breaking experiment, this series brings together the world's foremost experts in genetics, biochemistry, neuroscience, nutrition science and applied behavioural medicine to test the latest weight loss theory. Weight loss is not one size fits all - so the only way to diet successfully is to understand one's own body's individual biology and bespoke needs. This means that struggling with a diet is not all down to a failure of willpower: it may be a biological backlash.
