In the name of race, six million Jews were murdered in Nazi Germany, and millions of Americans are today classified as black and underprivileged.
Throughout history, there have always been deprived groups, even the British - Cicero once described his British slaves as incredibly stupid and impossible to teach. But only in the last 100 years has the idea of 'race' led man to define more rigidly differences between various groups.
The resulting doctrines have cast a shadow over the last half-century, but what do they mean now to a biologist, an anthropologist, and psychologist?
In tonight's Horizon we examine these different interpretations and ask: how did ideas about race originate? What foundation does it have in scientific investigation? Could it turn out to be man's most dangerous myth?
