Drugs and the Social Package


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.
A discussion following last week's two lectures by Griffith Edwards. If, as he suggested, our society's attitude to drug use and its regulation is neither. consistent nor rational, is a more rational attitude possible? Would it be based on more control, for example, of tobacco and alcohol, or on less control of other substances? Can we distinguish more finely between more dangerous and less dangerous drugs? Can more be done to identify, and help, the potential addict? BARBARA WOOTTON
SIR HARRY GREENFIELD , President of the International Narcotics Control Board
NIGEL WALKER, Reader in Criminology at the University of Oxford
GRIFFITH EDWARDS, of the Addic. tion Research Unit at the Institute of Psychiatry

Drugs and the Social Package

BBC Radio 3, 20 February 1972 21.15

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
