Overview

This reflective documentary from the Public Broadcasting Company explores the history and consequences of the innovations in reproductive technology that have enabled the conception of "Testtube Babies" - children conceived outside the womb. Tracing the history of the topic's research from its roots in the 1940's, through to the first successful baby born from lab conception in 1978, the film examines a practice that's served as a God-send for childless couples, and a controversial topic for others.
