And along came Dolly

Dolly was born on 5 July 1996, although the world didn't find out until early the following year. She was the first mammal cloned from an adult cell, rather than embryonic, and her birth - splashed over newspaper front pages - brought the issues surrounding cloning to breakfast table around the world.

But is Dolly 'unnatural'? And if so, is cloning 'wrong'?
