Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint

From Sunday Morning, 11:40 am on 19 May 2013

Eugenics was seen as a valid science by many, even after the Nazis took it to new depths. Wayne looks at the history, and suggests that it's making a sanitised comeback. Chris follows up with psychology professor Tony Taylor.
