All the Lonely People...

on BBC Radio 1 England

John Peel presents a Mailbag special on loneliness. Loneliness has been called the most private disease of the 20th century.
Everyone experiences it at some time, yet few are able or keen to talk about it. There is no foolproof cure, but perhaps the best we can do is to learn from the experiences of others.
The programme features the feelings and opinions of young people, and includes the views of Ian Dury, Carla Lane and Dr Tony Lake.
