Dolly: The Sheep That Changed the World

BBC 2 / BBC Scotland (1 x 60 mins)

Winner of New York Festivals TV & Film Awards 2023 Documentary Silver award.

This is the rip-roaring and revolutionary story of the scientists who created the sheep that changed the world forever: Dolly. 

Twenty-five years on, telling the full story for the first time with never-before-seen archive, this film reveals how on a small Scottish farm, a handful of the world’s best genetic scientists worked in secret to crack the holy grail of life: cloning. 

When the story broke, moral panic swept the world. From the Vatican to The White House there was outrage. But how did it happen? Who was behind it? What was the science? And, ultimately, what is Dolly’s legacy today?
