    Very graphic :eek: but if you can stomach it it's an excellent, informative programme. The plastination technique that fellah does is amazing. I think tonights is going to be the most horrible of them all, looks like cross-your-legs time....

    I was fascinated by this program!When I first turned it on(the german surgeon chap was just cuting open the upright body so this might have been very early on in the program)I commented how it didnt look real,as I thought for a moment that they were cutting into a dummy,but how wrong I was :nono: My brother mocked me for about 10 minutes saying of course it doesnt look real,they are just using an artificial body.....once they had pulled out the intestines and chopped up the liver my brother was finally prepared to accept that (to his horror)it really was a real human body :oops:

    Definatley a fascinating program and well worth watching :lesson:

    The rubbery, stiffened effect on the body is a consequence of the fixing process that is used to prevent putrefaction of the corpse (thus making it much more useful for demonstration).

    Very creepy man.

    I know exactly what he would've been experimenting on, had he been born 60 years earlier........

    Fascinating stuff. For as long as you can keep your dinner down.
