      My mother is a bit of a cow

      “What is a hybrid? The experiments involves transferring nuclei containing DNA from human cells, such as skin cells, into animal eggs that have had almost all of their genetic information removed. The resulting cytoplasmic embryos are more than 99% human, with a small animal component, making up around 0.1%.”

      BBC NEWS | Health | Q&A: Hybrid embryos

      I’ve just heard a leading scientist say on BBC News 24
      “the embryo is a human embryo” - not a hybrid.
      If the egg comes from a cow and the DNA is human
      Why is the embryo not a hybrid?
      It may be 99.9% human. But that is not 100%.

      Re: My mother is a bit of a cow

      Sorry guys.
      I thought I was watching BBC News24 but it was
      in fact, a docudrama “The Eve of Destruction” on Real Movies.
      There was a rather clever parody of a BBC interview
      with a scientist that had me fooled.

      The story is about the future war between The Humans and The Hybrids.
      Episode1: An infertility specialist implants a cytoplasmic embryo to cure a woman carrying a genetic defect.
      Episode 2: Animal Rights activists capture Eve and hide her in
      the rain forests of the Amazon.
      Episode 3: Christian fundamentalists hire a killer cyborg
      “from the future” to take her out (kill) and save the human race.

      Unfortunately, the Hollywood writers strike means the other 10 episodes
      will only be shown in the Autumn.
