Testing the Testers
Drug testingin sport has been much in the news recently, with British sprinter Solomon Wariso and Argentinian footballer Diego Maradona falling foul of the rules. But this documentary accuses the drug testing system of being scientifically inaccurate. inefficient and open to abuse.
Sportsmen and women talk about how they can be banned for merely drinkingcoffee while those who have failed a drugs test describe what being branded a drug cheat has done to their lives. There is also some disturbing evidence from scientists and medical experts as well as a report on the inconsistencies in penalties.
The programme, last in the current series, concludes that bogus science, petty jealousies. commercial interests and rampant egos threaten to undermine the very principles that the drug testing industry claims to be safeguarding. Executive producer Tony Moss

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.
