In the Blood

Synopsis
One of a series of 13 short films about remarkable scientific discoveries by Nobel prizewinners and their colleagues.

Looks at the human cardiovascular system and how Nobel Prizewinners have revealed the workings of the heart, the lungs and the 100-thousand kilometres of blood vessels that keep us alive. Subjects covered include the discovery of blood groups, the roles of arteries and veins and the capillaries that fuel our muscles, why aspirin stops blood clots, how diet and lifestyle affect the health of heart and blood system, and why prevention is better than cure.
