An enquiry by LESLIE SMITH based on conversations recorded at The British Industrial Biological Research Association: The Institute of Animal Physiology; The National Institute for Medical Research: The National Institute for Research in Dairying: Pfizers Ltd.: The Physiological Department, University of Cambridge: Sandoz Ltd., Basle.
By talking to the research workers who actually perform these experiments, not only do the techniques —and the intentions behind them-appear, but something of the attitudes of scientists themselves. It is not a programme about ethics, but an attempt to supply a basis of information on which each individual can make his own reasoned judgment on a subject riddled with illogicality and misconceptions.
