Guts with Michael Mosley, Part 3
Wednesday, April 17 at 10:00 p.m.
Michael Mosley scrutinizes his own digestive system to reveal what he — and most humans — look like inside.
Using the latest in medical imagery and a tiny state-of-the-art “camera pill” he swallows at the start of the film, Mosley takes viewers on a remarkable journey, revealing his innards as they digest his food. At each stage, he talks to medical experts and explains the amazing functions that occur without conscious effort. Among the discoveries is an intricate “second brain,” present in the intestines, that comprises millions of neurons to orchestrate digestion and may explain the concept of “a gut feeling.”
