: The Poisons That Heal: The BBC1 Documentary

Every time we take a drug, we take a calculated risk. All drugs are 'useful poisons' and some are more useful than others.
Medicines have a touch of magic - a genie in the bottle; a pill for every ill. And each time we take the tablets we expect them only to do us good.
Every day we in Britain collect one million prescriptions; every year we swallow 7,000 million pills. In a very real sense we are all on drugs.
Last month the Government launched a campaign to persuade us to cut down on our demands for unnecessary drugs. Our society's addiction costs millions of pounds a year in wasted pills.
In tonight's programme Caroline Medawar presents four aspects of the pharmaceutical industry. The film tells the story of four vitally important drugs in use today, and shows how the powder on the laboratory bench becomes the pill in the chemist's shop; how danger lurks in even the most familiar bottle; how the drug industry has become one business apparently certain of profit; how doctors, industry and patient all conspire to promote powerful drugs that many people don't really need. Narrator William Franklyn.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
