4/4. Death. Since Byron put the city on the tourist map, life has grown harder for the Venetians. But Francesco da Mosto still lives and raises his family there, even though he has seen the dangers the city faces. Modernising ideas also threaten Venice: from bridges linking the city with mainland Italy, to converting the Grand Canal into a motorway.

Using a technique that would be banned in the West. Dr Huang Hongyun injects cells from aborted foetuses into the brains and spines of patients with spinal injuries and disease. His treatment is based on research pioneered in the UK but scientists and neurosurgeons point to a gap in his provision of evidence or data. Could his patients be at risk?
