Old Jug bv CHARLES BOWNESS Read by Trader Faulkner
They sometimes ask if there are any aborigines in my part of Australia. Where I come from is not Abbo country. I never had any interest in the black fellers. If I thought of them at all, I thought of them as Stone Age people. But now that's changed.'

What Price Drugs
Presented bv John Maddox
In England last year 265-million prescriptions were dispensed, at a cost of £211-million.
The Association of Pharmaceutical Industries said in its last annual report: ' The industry and government have a common interest in fostering a strong, research-based and profitable industry which will produce safe and effective medicines at reasonable prices for the National Health Service.'
Are drug profits too high? Can they be justified by the cost and uncertain nature of long-term research?
