JONATHAN Millar has popped up again, following his success with the TV series The Body in Question last year and has produced Body Works with Genesis Productions - a program which shows in clear and illustrated detail various functions of the body.
Cells, respiration, digestion, muscles, nerves, circulation are all detailed and a marathon simulation ties the whole program together showing how each functions under stress.
So, if you have an overwhelming desire to know how nerves transmit messages to the brain - load it, sit back, look and learn. Each function is graphically illustrated for you and, as for straining yourself, all you have to do is press the space bar occasionally to move to the next stage.
There are two cassettes, a poster and booklet describing each process in the package, which probably accounts for the high price. The programs for each function are very short and slow. If the message takes as long to get to the brain as it does on the program, you would be dead long before it got there.
