28/11/2012 - Behind the scenes: BBC Filming 'Addicted to pleasure' at the RPS Museum
Earlier this year a BBC production team spent 2 days filming our current controlled drugs display at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Museum, for the 'Addicted to Pleasure' series.
Looking after a historical collection of controlled drugs always throws up a number of issues, and working with the BBC filming objects from our current 'Developing Treatments - Controlled Drugs' display was no exception! Originally the production team wanted to film the objects in a historical setting more in keeping with the 19th century; the period the programme focuses on. However Home Office controlled drugs licences strictly restrict the transportation or supply of controlled drugs. In the end, with a bit of set dressing and careful lighting, the BBC was happy to film the objects at the museum.
