TV Dinners: Prohibition

In this second episode of WORLDbytes’ TV Dinners, while guests tuck into cheese and cake for dessert, the conversation progresses to drinking and smoking. Interwoven with infamous campaign adverts designed to change our behaviour, diners consider whether the amount we drink and whether we smoke should really be up to us. Special guest Rob Lyons points out, the first thing you get from doctors is questions about your weight, smoking and alcohol consumption which may have absolutely nothing to do with what you have visited them for. Should we have the freedom to make unhealthy choices? If alcohol is a great social lubricant, is binge drinking okay? Is smoking a step too far for our health and should smokers be demonised? All the arguments are chewed over in this compelling short.
