Channel 4 has commissioned a fixed rig show investigating the daily impact our lifestyle has on our bodies.
24 Hours Inside Your Body will follow three volunteers across one day, using the latest forensic filming techniques in what the broadcaster has called the first ‘full human body rig’.
Using video footage and data taken from a supersized ‘fitbit’ worn throughout the day, scientists will track the volunteers’ movements to see how things such as their sleeping position, their diet and their jobs affect their health.
“The series will capture the obstacle course of everyday life to reveal the extraordinary things we expect from our bodies and the impact it has on our health,” explained executive producer Colette Foster.
Experts will be on the look out for trigger points where someone’s lifestyle is having an impact on their future well being, and they will try to influence the volunteers to make changes that will improve their lives.
24 Hours Inside Your Body is the latest fixed rig documentary to be commissioned by the channel, following the success of series including 24 Hours in A&E, One Born Every Minute and RTS award-winner Educating Yorkshire.
Channel 4 Features commission editor Kate Teckman order the programme, which will be made by Full Fat TV with executive producers Foster and Sarah Eglin.
