Richard Dawkins and Dr Yan Wong on genetic ancestry (extended version)

Liz Bonnin used mitochondrial DNA to trace her ancestry right back to the earliest humans. It's a subject co-presenter Dr Yan Wong knows plenty about, and a great excuse for him to meet up with his old tutor, Professor Richard Dawkins. The pair collaborated on a book, and here they chat about one of its main themes: how lineages of different genes can reveal surprisingly different histories.
