This documentary was broadcast by the Italian national Channel 3, on 22 October 2004, in prime time. Never before or after, to our knowledge, a journalistic inquiry on vivisection, assuming a neutral point of view, exposed so convincingly the poor quality of both the methodology and their perpetrators. It is the definitive proof that in order to refute vivisections it is enough to let vivisectors speak. It would be great if someone took the task of inserting English subtitles.
