The Guinea Pigs
Between 1958 and 1962 pregnant women were prescribed a wonder drug
to stop morning sickness, but it had dire consequences for the babies,
they were born disabled and became commonly known as thalidomide.
The tragedy raised serious questions about the testing of drugs on animals.
This extremely interesting programme takes a close look at the different
methods that are used in the testing of new drugs.
