Your Inner Fish

Season 1
201416+
In this provocative and insightful series, fish palaeontologist Neil Shubin explores how the human body carries the legacy of animals that lived millions of years ago and leads a cutting-edge scientific adventure. We find out how hernias, hiccups, and hypertension can be traced back to a time when our limbs were fins and our gonads were close to our hearts.
