Gene detectives
Imagine if you could prevent diseases by predicting exactly who would get them, when they would strike, and then taking action before it happens.

It might once have seemed like science fiction, but it's rapidly becoming part of mainstream medicine.

By tracking down genetic mutations, whole families can have their lives extended.

SUNDAY goes inside the world of the Kiwi gene detectives, and speaks to those getting help often before they know they are sick.
