BBC footageWe Saw it – Like a Flash, Ruth Maclennen, 2003-2006

We Saw it–Like a Flash journeys through 50 years of biotechnology, our history as seen on TV. The BBC archives have been rearranged and entangled to uncover forgotten narratives about our past developments and future concerns. Topics touched upon include paralleling histories of genetics and society. The footage debates cloning, genetically modified food and other topics in this realm. You also get a glimpse of the BBC’s changing demographic, aging (male) presenters and the power of editing.
