Ideas Massey Lectures 2013: Secrets in Our Blood (Part 5 of 5)

The last of five parts in the 2013 Massey Lectures, Blood: The Stuff of Life. Celebrated author Lawrence Hill explores the scientific and social history of blood, and the ways that it unites and divides us today. Our blood contains many secrets: an identity we have chosen to hide, crimes we have committed, children we have engendered, people to whom we are related. Blood can yield secrets about our most distant ancestry.
