To take a look at the science of GM behind the hype and headlines, I spoke
to Professor Jonathan Jones at the Sainsbury Laboratory.

I listened to the recent GM podcast on Naked Genetics and if I remember correctly Jonathan Jones mentioned introducing a bacterium into the plants genetics. This immediately reminded me of the Endosymbiotic Theory. We as Eukaryotes are a kind of GM.  Thats a stretch, I know, but it came to mind whilst listening to the show.
