Donated To Science

“Several years ago we interviewed a group of people who were planning to donate their bodies to the Otago Medical School for dissection by students. They also gave us permission to follow their bodies through the whole process. This amazing, moving and above all human film is the result” – From the producers

  2. This was an amazing documentary. I have always wanted to donate my body to science just as my grandmother did. Thank you for the tenderness shown in this film.

  3. Dear Vidasan, Please take ‘Donated to Science’ off from your Youtube Channel. It is my copyright material. If you do not, I will report you for copyright violation. Sorry, but I make my living from my films. Regards pAUL.

  4. very interesting…

  5. WOW! planned for years to donate when time comes, never thought about it effecting the students so strongly!

    • I have donated my body to the medical department at the University of British Columbia. You must make the proper arrangements while you are healthy and able to do so. A sudden death by accident, stroke, heart attack, etc. will render the best of intentions null and void. All arrangements can be made through the mail by contacting the organization you wish to give your body to. The entire procedure will be explained and it is very simple. It will be a great benefit with the added plus of keeping your corpse out of the hands of the funeral industry.

      Unfortunately this documentary has been deleted and I am unable to watch it.

  10. Easily one of the top 5 documentaries I have EVER seen.  Extremely moving.

  11. if You persist first minutes after rest of film is in eglish. By the way there is nowhere writte that tis doc portail is reserved for only eglish spoken people 😉

  12. oh ho – if you carry on a bit , behold – there is English being spoken!  

  13. I’m disappointed that it’s not in English, but if you click the CC, you can choose to translate the audio, which makes it watchable.  

  14. Unfortunate it’s not in English 🙁
