The Ups of Down’s

The Ups of Down’s – Oliver Hellowell is a wildlife photographer with fans all over the world. He also has Down’s Syndrome which means he has an extra chromosome in each of his cells. Chromosomes carry instructions for the way babies develop and grow, and most people have 46 in each cell. People with Down’s Syndrome have 47 – an extra copy of chromosome 21 – which can cause learning disabilities. In this film, Oliver’s mother Wendy describes what it was like to have a child with Down’s Syndrome, and how Oliver – and his photographs – have changed her life for the better.

Future Humans

Future Humans – Genetic engineering is now a reality. Scientists can make tiny alterations to an embryo’s cells which means that hereditary diseases like cystic fibrosis could one day be eradicated for good. It could also mean that parents might be able to choose what their baby looks like, or improve its intelligence, or make it a better athlete. What effects will this have on the future of our society? Is genetic engineering good or bad for the human race?
