Insect Dissection

Synopsis
Through a series of dissections combined with state-of-the-art imaging techniques, the programme examines insect anatomy at micro level. Insects outnumber humans by 200 million to one and are the supreme innovators of the animal world: without them ecosystems would collapse, crops would disappear, and waste would pile high.
The programme shows how insects have evolved to survive and how discoveries made in insect labs have implications for technological developments that will transform the human world.
