“To truly understand our hands and feet, we need to look inside them”, says biologist Dr George McGavin.

McGavin is the presenter of the first part of a two-part BBC documentary series taking us to discover the natural engineering that makes us human unique: It shows the dissection of a real hand and foot. At the Institute of Motion Analysis and Research (IMAR) at the University of Dundee, leading experts in human anatomy have created a dissection lab to look inside a hand and a foot taking them apart layer by layer. “You can learn a lot from books and lectures but it is only by dissecting the human body yourself that you truly understand how it works,” McGavin argues.
