Focus, or Focus 580, was WILL Radio's flagship talk program from 1981 until 2014. David Inge was the host from 1981 until his retirement in 2012. Always engaging, the program acted as a resource for citizens to directly question politicians and candidates as well as keep up on the arts, science, health, and even the latest from well-known novelists.
The Focus archive below offers thousands of great interviews and serves as a time capsule and a great resource for researchers and those just curious about how influential people spoke of important topics as they were happening.
Today on Focus we'll review what is arguably the most ambitious medical research project ever undertaken: the exploration of the human genome. Our guest will be Eric Green from the National Human Genome Research Institute. He'll explain some of their technology and give us a progress report. Much has been accomplished, he says, but we are only partway up the mountain.
