: Man Alive

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives Reporters JIM DOUGLAS HENRY
This week: The Drug Debate
The second of two programmes in which Horizon and Man Alive have combined forces to examine the issues raised by ' the drug problem.'
While scientists and doctors attempt to discover more about the chemistry of the abuse of drugs, the problem still exists-in social terms. It may be true to say that the number of deaths in this country from hard drug addiction is small, compared with, for instance, road deaths or deaths from lung cancer. But that, in turn, is only comparative. There are drug addicts in increasing number in our society today. Can we cure? Should we control? Should we care?
Tonight's Man Alive looks not so much at the scientific evidence as the social consequences when both the experts and others connected with the problem debate the future with DESMOND WILCOX.

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.

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.
