Get ready for a journey that explores the mechanics of the human body in the science/biology documentary Nova: The Universe Within. With microphotography and computer graphics, the program focuses on the body systems -- circulation, respiration, digestion, and reproduction -- of world-class athletes. Witness the "inner workings" of track star Karen Hatchett, five-time Olympic gold medal-winning speed skater Bonnie Blair, and long jumper Mike Powell in this video narrated by Stacy Keach. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
