Unnatural Selection - 18 October

This documentary looks at the future of science when it comes to us. The science of gene-editing could be that in the future, diseases are eradicated and traits can be selected - leading to many debates over the moral, environmental and social implications of these changes. It might sound like something from a sci-fi novel but nope, this is real life. In the documentary, the show travels around the world to meet the scientists, hackers, critics, ethicists and beneficiaries of the technologies that defy evolution - and look at whether they will do more harm than good.

Forced to become an informant for the police, Cristina has to work against her brother despite her admiration for him growing up, leading her to question her own sense of right and wrong.
