Could you explain how a gene drive works?

Terry Jamea asked the Naked Scientists:
   Love your show.

I also have a suggestion.  Perhaps you could explain how a "gene drive" works on a future episode.  It has been suggested than a gene drive coupled with the appropriate mutation, could be used to eradicate mosquitoes and perhaps other pests.
What do you think?
