Many species of plant contain both ...
the male and female parts within each flower.

The male part, the stamen, is comprised of the anthers at the top, supported by the filament. The anthers produce pollen which contains the male gamete.

The female part, known as the carpel, has a stigma at the top where pollen attaches, and the ovary at the bottom containing ovules, the female gamete. Between the ovary and stigma is the style.

Insect (also bird, bat…) pollinated flowers have attractive looking petals to attract animals, and also produce nectar (a sugar-rich liquid) which provide a food source for animals. They also have a strong scent.

“My chances are 50-50. Not great odds. And that’s only to get to the starting line. The human race is not for ...
the faint hearted, when half the runners are doomed to die, before the race gets started.”

This documentary film explores the development of the growing fetus from conception to delivery. Open a window into the hidden world of the foetus and explore each trimester in amazing detail. It’s meant to be a joyous event, but in reality, it's a gripping battle for survival. Using cutting edge technology, we go inside the womb and follow the incredible nine month journey from conception to birth, showing how the struggle for life turns into the miracle of birth. Enhanced by poet Roger McGough’s reading of a series of poems written for the occasion.

“Until now, I thought I was the universe. But everything that is, was within me. Now that I can touch these walls, I realise I must be deep inside a greater universe.”
