Summary The subject of this episode is the process of breathing and how it relates to the heart, lungs, and blood. Jonathan Miller relates how the physical experiments of scientists such as Robert Hooke in the 17th century dispelled ancient Greek theories of the function of breathing and blood circulation. The episode concludes with an experiment during which Miller undergoes oxygen deprivation.
