Do I Drink Too Much? Human Biology, Genetics, and Alcohol( Visual )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why does tolerance for alcohol differ so widely from person to person? Do genetic factors make alcoholism unavoidable in some people? Should we drink at all? This program searches for answers, following addiction expert Dr. John Marsden as he observes--and participates in--experiments that assess alcohol's neurological and physiological impact. After exploring basic chemical and evolutionary concepts, Marsden visits London's Institute of Psychiatry, where brain scans, genetic testing, and psychological profiling shed light on alcohol addiction. In the U.S., Marsden goes inside the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to study other genetic markers, while moving toward a greater understanding of alcoholism in his own family history."--Container

Body hits( Visual )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode focuses on the nation's favourite drug - alcohol. Using 3D computer graphics to illustrate, it reveals some fascinating insights into booze and the physical and psychological effects it has on the human body. The programme looks at the behaviour of three women and three men as they venture out on a group blind date. They start sober, but as they drink more, the alcohol has some interesting effects on their sex hormones - some of which might well be a surprise to viewers. Not one to miss out on the action, presenter Dr. John Marsden takes part in his own social experiment to help explain why it is that women get drunk more easily than men, even when they are roughly the same height and weight as a man. Seventeen tequilas later, he is no longer able to comment, although his newly found dancing talent speaks for itself!

Weekend junkies( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of "Body Hits" examines the psychological and physical effects of the most commonly used recreational drugs: marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine. Dr. John Marsden, a psychologist and senior lecturer in addictive behavior at London's Institute of Psychiatry, reveals that cocaine causes the heart and blood vessels to age twice as fast. Marijuana, meanwhile, deposits four times as much tar in the lungs than tobacco. According to the show, most "weekend junkies" eventually get bored, cut down, and give up taking drugs altogether. But they're unable to ignore the physiological effects of their formally chemically filled weekends. By following the lives of three recreational drug users, who each use either marijuana, ecstasy, or cocaine, Marsden examines what these substances do to the brain and the body to make them so pleasurable, and at what price this chemically induced pleasure comes
