Press

‘This film is imaginative and new, something rare in modern television.’
The Times

‘The main thing about The Great Sperm Race is that they did something imaginative and new, which is quite rare in modern television – it was like watching an Indiana Jones film produced by the makers of the Viz comic and directed by Salvador Dali – entertaining, informative and something I will be showing my children, whether they like it or not.’
The Times

‘Julian Jones’ film is lovely and packed with information – this should be a staple part of sex education lessons’
The Sunday Times (Pick of The week)

‘Jones-world! – A highly entertaining romp – provided by Jones’ singular vision.’
Metro
