Test Tube Babies: American Experience

Season 19, Episode 4 of 13

For decades, the prospect of conceiving a human being in a laboratory seemed ripped from the pages of science fiction. Then, in 1978, everything changed. This one-hour documentary tells the story of doctors, researchers and hopeful couples who pushed the limits of science and triggered a technological revolution in human reproduction. In so doing, they landed at the center of a controversy whose reverberations continue to this day.
