The second of three programmes.

Designer Genes

"Test tube" calves, sheep carrying human genes, and immortal mice -

Chris Serle encounters them all on his trek through the new biotechnologies creeping into the livestock industry. Unacceptable tampering with nature or the key to a disease- and chemical-free future?

The last of three programmes. Fuzzy Logic

Robots are slowly moving out of the factory and into the home, hospital, farm and school. The new generation fuses advanced engineering with artificial intelligence to form not quite the thinking robot, as yet, but one capable of "fuzzy logic". Chris Serle meets some of the woolly thinkers and their creators, and looks at the potential of the new robot. Producer Sue Broom

Three science features presented by Jez Nelson.

1: To Boldly Go...

They have the technology, they have the capability to create in the solar system a second living planet. The science of "terraforming" has moved from fiction to fact and is now a serious concern of space scientists and environmentalists. Can the frozen wastes of Mars be turned into a living planet?

A Better Brain

Jez Nelson lends his brain for intimate photography of its internal workings. He discovers which bits work when and why - or if at all - and how this knowledge helps move the goal of brain repair closer. Producer Sue Broom

Netiquette

Globally linked computer networks have developed a life and society of their own. Whether you want to phreak, crack, hack or hobknob, it's all at your keyboard.

In the last of the series, Jez Nelson logs on and enters the digital world of crime, academia, coffee shops, clubs and pornography. Producer Sue Broom

1: Animat Magic. They mate, they create offspring and they evolve - but do they live? Some of the architects of artificial life forms believe they do, some sit on the fence, and some just get on with developing their

"animats". Jez Nelson leads you through the surreal world where computers and robotics meet biology. Producer Sue Broom. Repeated Sunday 9.30pm

3: As Small as the Eye Can't See This week, Jez Nelson looks at nanotechnology, the science of miniaturisation. Tiny robots are being designed to travel through your arteries clearing any blockages, and the chemists believe they can go even further by building machines from individual molecules.
