Short Circuit - Message in a Bottle
There is a deadly drug readily available on Britain's streets.
It's responsible for half of all hospital admissions.
It kills over 25,000 people a year.
It's connected with child abuse and broken marriages.
Over one million people in Britain are dependant on it.
It's implicated in three quarters of all violent crimes, half the murders and one third of suicides,
and yet if you're over 18 you can buy it perfectly legally.
Each year over two hundred million pounds is spent advertising it.
This excellent programme takes a close look at the effects of alcohol on the body.
(How much has society changed since the making of this programme fifteen years ago?)
Transmitted as part of the BBC Learning Zone shown during the night to enable block recordings to be made for schools.
These programmes for science were billed as 'Life Processes and Living Things' and were taken from different series as follows.
Programme 1: Science Zone - Horses for Courses
Programme 2: Seeing Through Science - Gene Genie
Programme 3: Short Circuit - Genetics
Programme 4: Short Circuit - Message in a Bottle
Programme 5: Short Circuit - Fatal Addiction
Programme 6: Short Circuit - Homeostasis
Each programme is numbered and has a countdown clock in the corner as a guide to where you are in the programme.
I'm uploading them separately as they obviously aren't originally from the same series.
