In 1997, Scottish scientists revealed they had cloned a sheep and named her Dolly, sending waves of future shock around the world that continue to shape frontiers of science today.


We've technically been able to clone human beings for almost a decade. So, why haven't we? The answer has way more to do with science than morality. Not only is cloning inefficient and dangerous, there's just not a good enough reason to make a human this way. But making entire copies of people isn't the only way we can potentially use cloning to benefit humans.

Looks at the controversial attempts to clone a human being. Documents for the first time on television the formation of a 10 cell human embryo and explains the science behind the cloning procedure.
