The Rise and Fall of Drink
In 1933 an American newsreel announced the end of 'the biggest drought in the history of mankind'. Yet Prohibition has continued to cast its shadow. As alcohol abuse has risen, there has been a reluctance to accept it as a social problem and instead it has been called a 'disease'.
Politicians have stood aside as the disease has become an epidemic.

Swords into Ploughshares
1: The Soviet Union leads the space race, yet people queue for food in Moscow....
The USSR is in political and economical turmoil - the nation's stability may yet depend on the reform of agriculture. Although it has dramatically cut military spending, it still spends billions on armaments while relying on the USA for grain imports. The failure of Soviet agriculture has been more than an embarrassment, it threatens the whole process of perestroika and President Gorbachev's future with it.
In the first of a two-part special from the Soviet Union, Ian Breach reports on why Russia can't feed itself.
Plus the weather for the countryside at 12.55pm with Ian McCaskill.

For nine years
Sir John Hermon led the toughest police force in Europe - the Royal Ulster Constabulary.
He was an uncompromising, blunt and contentious figure whose decisions often incurred the wrath of Ulster's politicians. Last May Sir John retired. Now, for the first time since he left the RUC, Sir John speaks out about his long career as Northern
Ireland's Chief Constable.
He tells of the stress of fighting a ruthless enemy; of the controversies that engulfed his force; and of the dilemmas he faced policing the most politically charged area in Britain.
