TV programme reveals Cold War Frankensteins behind 2-headed dog

I post all sorts of wondrous items over at my Bizarro research journal that I keep for The Detroit News. Check out this particular story:

“As revealed in a National Geographic documentary to be screened later this month, the creation of the two-headed dog was the first step in an astonishing race by Cold War scientists to achieve the seemingly impossible - the first ever human head transplant. In pursuing this medical goal, Vladimir Demikhov - and his American rival, Robert White - may seem to be the epitome of immoral scientists who ignored all ethical considerations in their pursuit of scientific advance. But in their own minds, they were brilliant pioneers prepared to think the unthinkable for the greater good of mankind.”

TVData has video.

Sincerely,
