While I agree with a lot of what you said, Alan, the value of the tv
programme in making Irish people aware of DNA testing as being easy, fun
and of value to themselves, is very significant. The Irish public had no
real exposure to DNA as a tool for use in anthropology and family
history until "Blood of the Irish" was shown. It has helped to get more
Irish people interested in getting involved in DNA testing.
