LSD and mental health - survivors story

Almost a decade ago, a BBC H&W documentary investigated the use of LSD to treat patients at the Worcestershire County Asylum. Two of the people who had their lives ruined by the use of the drug talk about how the porgramme changed their lives.


Nine years ago BBC Hereford & Worcester broadcast a programme that was to change people's lives.

The documentary "Trip of a Lifetime" told a story that many still find hard to believe; it revealed that thousands of patients at the Worcestershire County Asylum were routinely given the hallucinogenic drug LSD.

Howard Belgard was the reporter who carried out the investigation and he met dozens of local people whose lives had been ruined by LSD - amongst them were Charles and Gloria Batchelor from Worcester.

Nearly a decade after that first meeting he spoke to them again about what effect making the original programme had on their lives.
