Animal rights campaigners are doing everything in their power to stop Oxford University from building a state-of-the-art, multi-million pound animal research centre. The Government, the university and its scientists say that this is a war they cannot afford to lose.
This film provides unique insights into this riveting drama. Over the course of a year, Mel Broughton, the activist leading the campaign against Oxford, tells viewers how far the animal rights activists are prepared to go to win. In the other corner, the impassioned scientists have the courage to speak out in favour of research for the first time.
