Default How Times Have Changed...

50 years ago on Tuesday, a key report was published that marked the beginning of a change in our relationship with smoking.

Although there had been previous warnings linking smoking and lung cancer, it was the 1962 study by the Royal College of Physicians, Smoking and Health, that really broke through to the public and politicians.

Attitudes in the intervening 50 years have changed enormously.

But in 1962, very few people took the dangers posed by smoking cigarettes seriously.

What I found very interesting was the video clip of a reporter interviewing smokers on the street. Well worth watching for the accents, manners and attitudes back in 1962!
(Although the clip kept reminding me of Harry Enfield's "Mr Cholmondley-Warner" sketches!! )
