I just got around to watching the June 8, 2015 episode of BBC’s Panorama, which focused on genetically engineered crops. Not willing to let the debate be handed over to softball questions or shouting matches, they handled it in true British style: Thoughtfully, inclusively, and also by traveling to Bangladesh to eat some Bt Brinjal! The only thing missing was a curry. If you haven’t seen this episode, it is certainly worth a watch! Hat tip to Chanin King in the Friends of Frank N. Foode Facebook group who found a version that we can see outside the UK.
