Must Watch Father’s Day TV Viewing—The Great Sperm Race

We had a chance to preview Discovery Channel Canada‘s Dad’s Day special, “The Great Sperm Race” earlier this month. They aren’t kidding when they billed it as “Sperm, as you’ve never seen it before.” We were blown away by how little we knew about what it takes for a sperm to meet an egg, and heck, we have kids. Using human-size sperm (hundreds of people dressed in white), computer imagery, dramatic reconstruction and world-renowned scientists, viewers will learn it is truly a life or death struggle for millions of sperm to get to their ultimate destination, with only one winner.

The special premieres on Father’s Day, June 21, at 8 p.m. on Discovery Channel.
