TV Preview: It Shouldn’t Happen to a Pig

TV Preview
The Guardian, 5 May 1979

Brass Tacks (BBC-2, 8.10) returns with a full-blooded commitment to the multi-media technique it has pioneered: a report and debate thrashing through a topic of current controversy in the television programme, with BBC local radio stations lined up to start phone-in discussion the moment the television has ended.

Factory farming, and the public risk of food poisoning arising from its crowded conditions and use of drugs – with salmonella the main enemy – is the first subject.

The public response will be reported by presenter Eric Robson in a programme the next Monday.
