RIDDLE OF HEREDITY
Tonight, in the last Eye on Life, Horizon looks at the basis of life itself-genetics, the science of heredity, and inherited characteristics.
Only recently has science uncovered the 'DNA Molecule,' and ' broken the genetic code.' What does this mean? Riddle of Heredity traces the history of genetic investigations of chromosomes and genes.
It raises some fundamental questions. Will man be able one day to manipulate his biological destiny? Will we ever create supermen? Should we, and if so, who will dictate our genetic future?
