Professor Winston has been responsible for making science understandable to generations and is one of our leading specialists on fertility and IVF. In this talk he addresses the subject of genetics, and the progress made with screening for genetic defects and disorders before a pregnancy has even begun. However the same methods could be used to modify genes. Is this a wonderful new world or a very risky and frightening Frankenstein monster? Supported by Otley Carnival.

7.30pm. For adults and young people. Bar; Tickets £20
