‘Human: The World Within’ on PBS

The comedy duo is teaming up for a new heartwarming comedy that explores the unlikely relationship between an aging comedy writer and a young singer.

Airing over six parts between now and June 2, “Human: The World Within” (8 and 9 p.m. on Channel 10, 9 and 10 p.m. on Channel 11, PBS) asks us to take stock of the things that literally make us tick.

“Human” begins, naturally with “Birth.” This hour examines both the biology of human reproduction and the remarkable breakthroughs in medical science over the past half-century that have contributed to new understanding of human fertility.

Part 2, “Pulse,” looks at the spectacular human heart; “Fuel” (May 12) examines food and digestion; “Defend” (May 19) looks at how the body fends off disease; “Sense” (May 26) explores perception; and “React” (June 2) maps the human nervous system, arguably the most complex network in the known universe.
