Race And Intelligence

Science's Last Taboo
SBS November 28, 2010

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.
