Immortals ?

The idea of postponing or even reversing the ageing process has always fascinated humanity. Some claim that immortality will be possible as little as thirty years from now – but will it just be for the rich?

Our team visited research laboratories working on this objective and interviewed the world’s top researchers in the field. We ask just how long humans might be able to live, and what it could involve.

The programme also looks into the popular wish to remain young and extend our lifespan. Some go to the extent of paying 8,000 dollars for a blood transfusion from a young person. We visited the clinic where they perform this bizarre procedure, whose scientific basis has been criticized, and spoken to the people in charge.
