Written by DEBBIE COOK Cast for the week:
"My daughter is using the pill as I did - I would never have thought that contraception would be the same 20 years on." Contraception is still imperfect; it's a choice among unpleasant alternatives. Scientists seek to widen choice by developing implants, vaginal rings and nasal sprays; others argue that research like this is misdirected and should be focused on improving barrier methods rather than making hormonal methods safer.
Anna Ford asks why, in spite of extensive scientific research, we are still falling short of the ideal contraceptive.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
