Race and Intelligence: Science's Last Taboo
Can race be treated as a scientific category that can be weighed and measured against one another? In 2007, Nobel Prize winning U.S. scientist James Watson was quoted referring to research that suggested one race was not as intelligent as another, before he was condemned for the remarks.
In this documentary, Rageh Omaar sets out to find out the truth, meeting scientists who believe the research supports the view that races can be differentiated as well as those who vehemently oppose this view. By daring to ask the difficult questions, Omaar is able to explode the myths about race and IQ and reveal what he thinks are important lessons for society.
