A Question of Genes: Inherited Risks, a 2-hour PBS special produced by Noel Schwerin (NoelEye Documentaries), received rave ratings when it was aired in September 1997. It was recommended as the weekly top choice for viewing by several leading newspapers and magazines and won second prize in the San Luis Obispo Film Festival. Sponsored in part by the DOE Human Genome Program and SmithKline Beecham, the program featured seven stories exploring individual experiences with genetic testing and the resulting choices.
