Science Under Attack (BBC Horizon Documentary)

This is a very interesting BBC documentary that shows how, all over the world,  science appears to be facing not scrutiny, but what can really be defined as attack. The public are increasingly skeptical not only about scientific views on complex (and seemingly controversial) issues like climate change, but also about long established certainties like the safety of vaccines or the fact that HIV causes AIDS.
The documentary also shows what is behind such attacks and sheds light on the actual scientific knowledge concerning the matters in question.
