Anatomy for beginners

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Anatomy for beginners

This looks like it should be an excellent show. I’ll certainly be watching, though my housemate did comment that it was slightly unfortunate that I felt the need to watch a ‘Beginners’ show just days after I did my anatomy exam.

I’m not entirely sure on the ethical side of this exercise, but things that increase the general public’s knowledge of health issues are generally positive, and provided the cadaver was donated with informed consent about the TV dissection, then I think it would be difficult to pick any particularly strong ethical arguments out of the situation. Though I admit that I’m not entirely familiar with the background of the programme, so I can’t say that I’m entirely comfortable with the concept. But we’ll see. The show itself should be great.
