    CELL MEMBRANES: THE BOUNDARIES OF LIFE

    Cell Membranes DVD begins by examining cell wall structure and the major functions of cellular membranes before introducing the fluid mosaic model of the phospholipid bilayer, and transport, recognition, and receptor proteins. The concepts of simple and facilitated diffusion, passive and active transport, and osmosis are illustrated. Endocytosis and exocytosis, the role of contractile and central vacuoles, and how desmosomes and tight junctions tie cells together and how plasmodesmata and gap junctions facilitate communication are explained.

    STEM CELLS: THE ETHICAL ISSUES

    This program comes to grips with the ethical issues raised by one of the most contentious areas of contemporary science: embryonic stem cell research. A range of viewpoints are presented, and speakers include: Professor Alan Trounson, prominent stem cell scientist; Father Norman Ford, an ethics commentator; Patients with life-threatening medical conditions. They clearly explain what they believe the important issues to be, and the reasons for their viewpoints. Each section is introduced with relevant facts explained in simple terms. Also includes two segments exploring moral/ethical questions raised by related areas of medical science: IVF; genetic testing of IVF embryos (known as PGD, or 'pre-implementation genetic diagnosis').
