were riveted to the screen, especially when showing the film and
photos of fetal development."

nominated documentary film
The World of the
Life Begins divides 45 minutes from Journey into
Life: The World of the Unborn and other videos into short
clips which can be accessed through related subjects or at any
time. This powerful and moving film, created by embryologist Derek
Bromhall over a period of five years, tells the story of the creation
of a new human life. Using the most advanced photographic techniques
and animation, it shows in detail the processes by which egg and
sperm are formed and the changes that take place at puberty.
The camera follows the path of the sperm through a woman's body
until sperm and egg come together at the moment of conception.
A tiny embryo's beating heart is filmed inside the womb as are
the stages of growth of a baby during 38 weeks of pregnancy. The
strangely beautiful world of the unborn child comes to a dramatic
end as a baby is brought into our world.
