The Body Human is a series of specials produced by the National Geographic Society and telecast by CBS, between 1977 and 1984.[1] They were produced and directed by Alfred R. Kelman, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 1966 for The Face of a Genius. Unlike most National Geographic specials, this series did not concentrate on exploring nature or the origins of man, but, as the name implied, on aspects of the human body, from plastic surgery to sexual function. Alexander Scourby was the narrator. The series was nominated for and won Emmy Awards as well as a Peabody Award.
