Paul Kammerer was the most brilliant and unorthodox biologist of his time. He was also the subject of the greatest scientific scandal of this century. In 1909 the results of Kammerer's experiments with salamanders and midwife toads rocked the scientific establishment.
Immediate scientific opposition began as an academic whispering campaign, grew into bitter controversy, and ended with the accusation of fraud-the worst sin known to scientists. Kammerer committed suicide.
Was he a fraud? If he wasn't, and his ideas are proved to be right, can we, as newspapers suggested, breed a Race of Supermen?
The programme reconstructs Kammerer's career. Scientists discuss the implications for modern man, and Arthur Koest ler, who tells the story, offers up some suggestions of his own.
