Summary

Richard Dawkins, professor of the public understanding of science at Oxford University, talks to Sheena McDonald about science, creationism and faith schools.

Controversial geneticist Dawkins is known for his outspoken views on teaching religion and science in schools. In this special programme the author of The God Delusion explains why he believes that teaching creationism in schools is like teaching the myth that storks deliver babies.

Dawkins also explains how he believes the teaching of science can be made more appealing to young people, why he believes segregated faith schools are "wicked" and why children should be taught more scripture.
