A decade ago, scientists announced they had produced the first draft of human genome, the 3.6 billion letters of our genetic code.

It was seen as one of the greatest scientific achievements of our time, an advance that could usher in a new era of medicine. A decade later, the entire horizon is how close we are to the development of life-changing treatments that were expected.

Horizon follows three people, each with a genetic disease, because they go behind the scenes of some of the laboratories of Britain’s leading research to find out what the human genome sequencing has done for them – and the hope of this extraordinary project offers all of us.
