Broadcast on SBS-TV 19 August 2003.This program investigates biology's latest discoveries, and the scope they offer in the area of sport. Cell replacement and gene therapy are opening up hitherto unimagined vistas for medicine. Following recent discoveries about the way growth factors affect stem cells, some scientists believe that it may one day be possible to repair damaged tissue. But scientific discoveries are always open to abuse, and the world of sport, always on the look out for miracle products and techniques that can alter the human body to enhance athletes' performance, has its beady eye on gene therapy.
