Appeared in BioNews 38

Visitors to the body zone in London's Millennium Dome will be able to see a computer animation showing a womb's-eye view of human sperm racing to fertilise an egg. The 45-second film has taken more than three months of painstaking computer animation by the British company Framestore which made the acclaimed BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs. John Hackney, head of the creative team behind the Body Zone exhibits, said: 'The film is designed to be exciting and entertaining and we have sought to show the sperm behaving like a tribe of predatory fish. There are moments of humour as well. We will show an idiot sperm attempting to swim the wrong way.'
