Eight different answers to the question Where Do I Come From? starting from the beginning of time.
Timeslice 8: Shuffled Genes
The last answer to the Big Question is the one about which scientists can be most certain.
Alan Emery , a professor of human genetics, and Lewis Walpert , a professor of developmental biology, appear on the Whole Universe Machine screens to explain in simple and entertaining terms the contribution that 100,000 generations of human ancestors have made to each of us. They answer the Whole Universe kids' last questions as, looking back to their origins in the Big Bang, Exploding Stars, Volcanic Gases, Cambrian Seas, African Savannahs and Ice Ages they begin to see a new-born human baby through different eyes. Their guide to the Whole Universe is Ian McNaught-Davis .

You'll be trusted, and we expect you to react to that trust." Open prisons are curious institutions, with little to prevent inmates absconding. But they function, and the public is rarely put at risk.
