Episode 1 - The Book of Life

The Gene Code

In this programme, Dr. Adam Rutherford discovers that every human carries the entire story of life on earth hidden in his or her DNA. Joining him in leading laboratories, we see how we are all linked directly to the origins of life and to the first creatures with backbones. Explaining just how scientific practice reveals the human life story in DNA, Rutherford investigates the implications of the fact that for much of its existence, the human race was an endangered species. Clear explanations and stunning visuals bring this complex area of science to life.
