Following the progress of a couple who are expecting triplets, from the 4D ultrasound scan to the babies’ dramatic entry into the world, this program describes the improbable sequence of biological events that result in the birth of a new human being. State-of-the-art graphics depict the journey of millions of sperm cells as they race to the egg, revealing how the best is selected to fertilize it after the others are destroyed by white blood cells; a body beginning to self-assemble; and the face of a developing embryo coming together. In addition, viewers meet a woman expecting her 16th child, and the oldest conjoined twins in the world.

A BBC Production.
