[Fox] reveals how frontline science can be just as messy, complex and feudal as any political drama.' Anjana Ahuja, co-author of Spike: The Virus Versus the People. Do you remember the 'Climategate' email leak? Or the 'Frankenfood'-style headlines about the perils of GM foods?

Beyond the Hype takes us behind the scenes of some of the most contentious stories in science over the past two decades. From animal research and genetically modified foods to hybrid embryos and a global pandemic, it demonstrates the vital importance of scientists talking to the media - and warns of the damage to public understanding when scientists are silenced on the defining issues of our times.
