Making Babies
Program Number


Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

FRONTLINE examines the revolution in reproduction and the entrepreneurial atmosphere that imbues the practice of infertility medicine today. On the cusp of a new millennium, people can now visit the Internet and choose sperm and egg donors by their genetic profile. And soon, cloning will do away with the need for sperm altogether. The program looks at how these new technologies hold great promise, but present pressing questions regarding the very meaning of family.
