Guess What's Coming to Dinner
In the next ten years, you'll be eating food created by genetic engineers. Tomatoes that produce a caterpillar poison, crops that glow in the dark - not science-fiction but fact: new foods that contain genes from microbes, animals and foreign plants.
Do we need this genetically engineered food? The technology could be used to make drought resistant crops for the Third World or to help food processors take a penny off a can of tomatoes. It could be used to reduce, or increase, the use of pesticides. So what will it be used to achieve?
And, when it happens, will it cause ecological chaos? Written and produced by TESSA LIVINGSTONE
