Summary
Using 3D animation, time lapse, infrared, and macro photography, this documentary takes us on a fascinating exploration of the invisible teeming life that surrounds us. As we watch David Suzuki go about his daily life, fluffing his pillow, taking a shower, having breakfast, we see that trillions of bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and mites flourish on every inch of his skin. For the most part, these beings are benign. Many, in fact, are essential to the proper functioning of our immune systems. This program is about the natural history of this invisible world: the things that float in the air around us, the microbes that live in the dishcloth, the fungi under our fingernails, and the visitors in the saucer under a houseplant. Our toothbrush dislodges some five hundred species of bacteria, comfortably ensconced in our mouths. From the sticky door handle of the refrigerator to the generations of dust mites under the living room rug, there are "critters" most of us don't even know exist
