This week we discover what genetic modification experiments they’re actually doing in Rothamsted – the place that anti-GM campaigners have announced they intend to trash in a few weeks time. We also speak to Jocelyn Bell Burnell, the woman who discovered pulsars – and discover the intriguing ethical dilemma behind “do not resusitate”. And more!
