Influential individuals in science and broadcast media, including Robert Winston, contributed their thoughts to the programme, commenting on how science on TV has reflected, or led, to our collective image of science and the scientist.
Robert Winston presented his top ten scientific breakthroughs from the last 50 years. On his journey, he explored subjects from the origins of the universe to probing the inner workings of the human mind, and even met some of his early IVF patients.
Jim Al-Khaili talks to Professor Robert Winston about IVF, designer babies and why scientists must take ethical responsibilty for the work they do.
