History of the human body explored by BBC Radio 4

Independent radio production company Made in Manchester has made a ten part series for Radio 4 and BBC Sounds about the history of the human body.

Written and presented by anatomist, anthropologist and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts, Bodies also includes drama from voice actor Jonathan Kydd.

Alice’s time travelling tour of anatomical knowledge traces the history from cave men to DNA.

Executive producer and MIM Creative Director Ashley Byrne says: “This is a brilliant and most enlightening series authored expertly by Alice and peppered with great drama from Jonathan. The shows are equally informative and entertaining.”

Bodies started on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 18th January and airs every weekday from 1.45pm with omnibus repeats on Friday evenings. It will also be available on BBC Sounds after broadcast.
