       Additional Information  
      News items abound concerning the rapid evolution of genetic research. At the same time we are told the world is hurtling towards climate disaster.

    Sebastian James is a genius geneticist. Charged by the British Government to produce a modified human, capable of withstanding the future onslaught of global warming, he vows to complete his remit at any cost. His obsessive nature makes him unpopular with almost everyone. Hated by his daughter he struggles with his own emotions, at times allowing his single-mindedness to rule his actions. Over thirty-six years we move via Portsmouth and Scotland to the waters of the Mediterranean, following the fate of the hybrids and the effect they have on their human contacts. In 2008 Sebastian is given the opportunity to be reconciled with his daughter Belinda. Can they reunite before tragedy strikes? And can the new beings ever be accepted into society?
