How accurate is the term “identical twins”? Can a cell-for-cell likeness between two siblings really exist? And what does that say about the supposed uniqueness of each human being? This program examines the genetics, physiology, and psychology behind such questions as it presents fascinating real-world case studies of identical twin development. Viewers meet monozygotic twins raised apart and finally reunited, another pair who suffered identical illnesses at the same time, and two brothers, both doctors, setting out to discover if their shared genes mean they will be identical forever. Two decades of medical research on physical similarities in twins—recorded down to the tiniest skin markings—highlight the concept of “natural cloning.” A BBC/TLC Coproduction. (52 minutes)
