Embark on a compelling, mind-blowing, and complex journey through 300 years of history to discover the secrets of the cell – and of life itself.

In this fascinating series, Dr Adam Rutherford explores the history of our understanding of the cell – from the first observations of the cellular structure of plants, right through to modern research in synthetic biology. It is a story of rivalries and secrecy, mistakes and accidents, and sudden insights that overturned scientific and religious dogma. Controversial on every level, what has been discovered about how the cell creates life defies the laws of physics and chemistry.
