Poisoning is humanity’s oldest science. But only in the last century scientific techniques have advanced enough for us to understand the effects of deadly toxins. And only recently computer graphics have become sophisticated enough to show the audience what happens inside a poisoned body.
This film looks at the various ways that poisons have been used throughout history, using dramatic reconstructions of some of the most infamous poisonings. With the help of advanced computer animation, we travel inside the bodies of unfortunate victims, to witness from the inside how they died.
