Artist-animator-medical illustrator Frank Armitage combines footage from his professional medical animations with historical images to provide a lecture about the history of anatomical illustration, as well as the present-day (circa 1970) uses of anatomical animation in medical film. Why the film was made or where it was presented is unknown: no title or credits appear. Armitage had then recently worked on the set-design for the film Fantastic Voyage as well as on animation for surgical instruction films and Walt Disney studios.
