Biotech Revolution


Biotech Revolution is part 2 of the BBC series Visions of the Future.

Genetics and Biotechnology promise a future of unprecedented health and longevity: DNA screening could prevent many diseases, gene therapy could cure them and, thanks to lab-grown organs, the human body could be repaired as easily as a car, with spare parts readily available. Ultimately, the ageing process itself could be slowed down or even halted. Leading theoretical physicist and futurist Michio Kaku looks at the revolution in genetics and biotechnology, which promises unprecedented health and longevity but also raises the spectre of a Frankenstein future of genetically engineered people.

Will we, as transhumanists expect, evolve into a new species?

Dr Kaku warns that we may end up in a world divided by genetic apartheid.
