Part of the In Search Of series, this documentary looks for the truth behind the secrets of the existence of humans, the Earth, and the Universe. Narrated by series host Leonard Nimoy, the video uses the science of DNA and genetic testing to try and get to the bottom of some of these age-old secrets. There is a focus on genetic engineering and other genetic techniques, such as gene splicing and laser surgery on DNA molecules. These breakthroughs in genetic science allow doctors and scientists to explore the human body and the universe more than ever before thought possible. Scientists also show how these breakthroughs increase human control and decrease the natural progress of DNA and genetics.
