The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
Flowers Can Damage Your Health Presented by medical students from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, London.
' Don't plant Flowers on the Free." Our future is threatened. The Flowers Report proposes to amalgamate London's 34 teaching colleges into six. But what kind of doctors will this produce? We're trained to treat patients as people, but does " big is beautiful" work in the National Health Service? Do you want to be treated as just another bed number? If Lord Flowers has his way that's how it could be.'
