The Philpott File: One Man's Meat: Other People's Poison


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The third in a series of films about beef, beef barons and beef-eaters - and about the people who won't eat a mouthful at any price.
From hippy communes to exclusive health farms, vegetarianism is in fashion. But being a true vegetarian is not merely a matter of diet, it's a matter of belief.
There are around 100,000 people in Britain who find themselves too sensitive to eat the flesh of animal, bird or fish; who cannot be party to what they consider the enormous daily murder of millions of living creatures. Some drink milk and eat eggs, butter and cheese. For others (vegans) even these are forbidden foods.
Vegetarians must satisfy their consciences at every mealtime. It isn'just a simple matter of avoiding meat. For much of the time the vegetarian is forced to live in his own world, a world with many problems, problems that can be particularly severe for the very young and the very old.


Presenter/Producer: Trevor Philpott

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
