Blinded by Science A scientific comedy by Paul Viragh.
Professor Michael Hart is a leading figure in genetic and biological research, and in the running for a plum government job. But he has an "unethical" rival, an ailing marriage, a lack of selfesteem and an ungrammatical self-help CD.
From The Radio Times
Very smart: Paul Viragh's comedy puts science in the title but adds politics to the story to make the laughs arresting. Two rival scientists are competing to become the government's new adviser on genetics-the ethics minefield that divides voters and so scares politicians. Perhaps science can't resolve the issues but it should be the one asking the questions and waiting for the answers before taking decisions. Pure scientc method is what we need but it isn't going to be what we get. Not when one of the rivals is old-school and the other is very new-school. Blinded by Science is about how far this pair are willing to go to get the job: as they try to beat each other to the post, what price the real questions about embryo research? James Fleet and Stuart McQuarrie star.
