Thanks everybody.

As a temporary solution I have simply exported the graphic as a pdf file and included it in beamer. 

I downloaded gnuplot and put it in my Applications folder. This may not be the correct thing to do. I got it from Sourceforge and don’t know if it is even the correct version for the Mac.
