Transhumanism - A Healthy Idea?
Mal Fletcher on BBC Radio
Scientists are now seriously addressing the issue of whether human beings might soon be able to live for very extended periods of time - or perhaps indefinitely.
Will advances in medicine, genetics, biochips, prosthetics and the like make it all possible?
Mal Fletcher, Social Future, discusses the claims and the possible dangers of Transhumanism in this interview with BBC arts editor Will Gompertz.
Mal's fellow guest is John Hoy, CEO of Blenheim Palace.
