The Seeds of Creation

Can a corporation's new plant strain mutation bring relief to famine stricken countries? Stars Paul Copley and Rosalind Adams.

Ralph Exon - working for an international fertiliser corporation - has created a new strain of plant: a mutation which he hopes will bring relief to the famine-ridden countries of the world.

It's an innocent-looking plant. But in that plant, known as the Exon strain, there also lurks the Destruction Factor...
