When I first heard they were going to chop up large, dead zoo animals on TV I felt a bit dubious. Is this going to be a sensationalist program for gore fiends or is it going to be a cracking natural history programme. I think reviews have been favorable but what do you think?

I will reserve judgement until it happens.

Gunther von Hagens, I find him a bit weird, especially in the wrong light and that hat he's got on.

You're right about the hat....spooky !

I imagine he's a handy bloke to have when it comes to carving a roast !
