Julian Savulescu - Medical ethicist

Stephen Sackur speaks to the Australian-born, Oxford-based medical ethicist Julian Savulescu, asking if we can trust ourselves to be masters of our own biology.

From genetic engineering to bioscience, human beings are close to acquiring the ability not just to combat disease, but to enhance and perfect our species. But should we seek to do it, or should we shy away from a path that led to eugenics?
