Science under attack ( Visual )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The consensus of the world's science academies, reached after a series of annual conferences, is that climate change is real, and that it's caused by human activity. Why, then, do so many people doubt these findings? In this program Nobel Prize winner Paul Nurse seeks to understand what may be the greatest amount of suspicion of the scientific community since the Dark Ages. Nurse goes head to head with climate change skeptic Fred Singer, and takes on the misinterpreted "Climategate" emails that ignited a firestorm of denier outrage. Nurse also talks to a man with HIV who does not believe the virus causes AIDS, and examines wariness of genetically modified foods. The role of the media in politicizing research and evidence is also considered
Eukaryotic chromosome replication : proceedings of a Royal Society discussion meeting held on 10 and 11 December 1986 by Royal Society discussion meeting ( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Predictor ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment looks at the extent to which genes determine human behavior and destiny. A woman discovers that a single letter change in the genome has been responsible for her family's generations-old "curse" of deformed hands. Dr. Hugh Montgomery of University College Hospital, London, screens the DNA of army recruits for the ACE or endurance gene which may affect their longevity as well as their basic training. Dr. Dean Hammer of the National Institutes of Health explains his search for a thrill-seeker gene, D4DR. Attorney Daniel Summer argues for leniency for his death-row client because his DNA predisposed him to a life of crime. Professor Lee Silver of Princeton University and Nobel Laureate Sir Paul Nurse also provide commentary

Meanwhile in England, a couple prepares for the result of cloning the natural way: triplets. Shows the latest advances in stem cell development and genetic science. The efforts of Dr. José Cibelli, head of research at Advanced Cell Technology, which led to the first artificially cloned embroyo, are paralleled with genetic replication as it occurs naturally in the womb. Professor Lee Silver, molecular biologist at Princeton University, and Nobel Prize-winning cell biologist Sir Paul Nurse comment on how these innovations have changed human life
