Cult - The word alone inspires feelings of frightening intensity, from fear and loathing to ecstatic, even murderous devotion. From the dawn of history to the age of Al Qaeda and Aum Shinrikyo, cults have shaken and shaped the fate of empires and the lives of countless men, women and children. Cults are a force of such elemental power in society that they are studied and monitored by institutions from the National Institutes of Health and the Vatican to the FBI. But what are they? Where do cults come from? Why do they persist? Why do we fear them - and should we?

In 2007, Nobel Prize-winning scientist James Watson was quoted referring to research suggesting black people were less intelligent than other races. Watson's comments were condemned by many - but not by all. In this program, Somali-born English journalist 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 explore the myths about race and IQ and reveal what he thinks are important lessons for society.
