Aliens Inside Us 1 x 60'
Invisible, alien worlds thrive inside our bodies. By the time a new-born baby leaves the hospital, she’ll have 10 times more microbial cells thriving in her than her own. And they’re not passive houseguests. Microbiologist Maria Gloria Dominguez Bello teases apart the role micro-organisms play in our lives, and how our modern, sterile lifestyles may be changing them.

The film introduces us to the wonders of microbes - how we evolved alongside them and how without them, we couldn’t survive. We look at how the microbes in, on and around us both cause and prevent disease and how their disappearance may be responsible for everything from asthma and allergies to diabetes and obesity.

From state-of-the-art laboratories in California to a tropical island in the South Pacific tipped to hold the key to predicting the health of the planet, from designer babies, genetically tailored drugs keeping us healthy long past our prime, or superbugs which fight pollution, this fantastic voyage is just beginning.
