The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television Free To Air -

Sun­day, 8.35pm, SBS One

In this two-part se­ries, psy­chol­o­gist Ber­tolt Meyer, whose has had a pros­thetic arm since the age of three months, meets ex­perts from around the world to find out just how far this cut­tingedge tech­nol­ogy can go. Med­i­cal break­throughs have en­abled doc­tors to re­place some of the most com­plex parts of the hu­man body, but how far can re­search take us? And, in a world first, a team of in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary ex­perts builds a bionic man us­ing nearly $1m worth of state-of-the-art limbs and or­gans, the prod­ucts of bil­lions of dol­lars of re­search. The re­sult is on dis­play at Lon­don’s Sci­ence Mu­seum.
