Ageing
Season 1  |  Episode 4  |  SBS2  |  April 23, 2013

In this four-part series, anatomist Dr Gunther von Hagens and pathologist Professor John Lee get right under the skin to reveal the processes in life that tie us to our ultimate fate in death. They perform a series of autopsy demonstrations. Von Hagens compares body parts from the cadaver of a woman over 80 years old with the same body parts from a much younger woman. By revealing the extent of internal damage, von Hagens and Lee demonstrate the widespread effects of ageing and explain why we can't live forever.
