This animated video which includes all the explanation of how gene therapy works with captions is well worth a look.

It explains in the simplest of terms, how gene therapy has developed and why scientists believe this area of biotechnology offers the greatest opportunities for eradicating disease and illness.

The film is just under 10 minutes long but tends to run out of steam a little around the five minute mark when the music from Creed ends. Pretty good though.
