Stem Cell Universe

Synopsis
Popular science documentary. The topic of stem cells has been a matter of great debate for our generation. No other subject straddles the line between life and death such as the question over the validity of the use of stem cells to improve the lives of those who seem beyond repair. Stephen Hawking narrates this programme, which delves into the subjects of stem cells both embryonic and adult, to explore what these mechanisms are capable of.
