“WORK HARD THROUGH LIFE” JOG STUDENTS TOLD BY ONE WHO KNOWS WELL

“G

et on with it, work hard through life and never sit back and soft pedal.” This was the stark message of senior BBC newsreader and journalist George Alagiah to students at Hungerford’s John O’Gaunt Community Technology College annual prize giving and certificate presentation evening on Thursday, January 13. The college was celebrating a year of success in which examination results surpassed any of recent years placing it back as a leading educational institution. The staff, headed by head teacher Mr Neil Spurdell, backed by the school’s governors, parents and students have much to be proud of. The college can now look forward to recruiting many students in future years to share in its high quality education. Mr Alagiah, guest speaker at the evening, is a true example of a man who has worked his way through the ranks. He was born in Sri Lanka and educated there, in Ghana and in England when his parents brought he and his four sisters to this country for further education.

RECOLLECTIONS OF AN

BY

EXCITING LIFE

CHAPMAN PINCHER

DETESTED SCOOP

E

very working day on a national morning newspaper, the staff face a mass of blank pages which have to be filled within about nine hours. So, as a rule, the most popular journalist of the day is the one who breezes in early with a hot scoop that will dominate the front page and provide a commanding headline. There was one day in 1954, however, when I did exactly that and was detested for it – not just by the Editor and most of the reporters but by the whole Management and, especially, the Advertising Department. In addition to my roles as defence and scientific reporter of the Daily Express I was also the medical correspondent and, as such, had developed some highly placed contacts, one of whom had given me advance information about some awesome news which was about to be published by the Medical Research Council. An epidemiologist, called Richard Doll, then unknown to the general public, had secured the co-operation of 40,000 doctors who had been providing him with details of their personal habits and medical statistics. His study had already shown – beyond question - that regular cigarette smoking caused lung cancer and also increased the risk of heart disease. With 80 percent of British adults then smoking cigarettes, this was news of national and, indeed, international importance because the habit was world-wide. As the Editor and almost all his night staff who worked against the clock to ‘put the paper to bed’ each evening were chain-smokers my news was personally disastrous. The immediate idea of giving our 11 million plus readers, most of whom were likely to be smokers – such news at the breakfast table was preposterous. And what about the revenue from the paper’s cigarette advertisements? The immediate response was to reject Doll’s finding as utter rubbish. There was a saying that there were ‘lies, damn lies and statistics’ and all Doll had was statistics. The decision was taken to ‘spike’ my story which was the saying for dismissing it as nonsense. (My ‘holier-than-thou’ position was not helped by the fact that I had never smoked a cigarette in my life.) All I could do was to warn my Editor that the story would break anyway and that the Government would have to respond if only because the taxes

GS

levied on tobacco almost exactly paid for the Health Service in those days. I urged them, at least, to start planning for the days when advertising cigarettes would be banned by law – a suggestion that produced guffaws. It was a classic example of the adage that if the message is bad, shoot the messenger. The tobacco and advertising industries mounted massive campaigns of resistance which, of course, were supported by most of the smokers but, as the medical evidence mounted, successive Governments felt forced to intervene with actions which, progressively, banned tobacco advertisements from the media which, eventually had to accept the facts. Currently only about 26 per cent of the adult population smokes and the places where it is lawful for them to do so have been progressively reduced. In the process, Richard Doll was knighted and honoured in many other ways and when he died in 2005, aged 92, was rightly credited with having preserved countless millions of lives world-wide. His finding has been one of the key factors in the remarkable rise in longevity. (In Russia, where smoking remains rampant, the average male expectation is 57, though vodka plays its part.) With the effects now undeniable and widely publicised I find it extraordinary that anybody smokes but, as a Yorkshire saying has it, ‘there’s nought so queer as folk’. While in our village corner-store recently, I watched an intelligentlooking young lady part with more then £6 for a small carton bearing the warning, in large black capitals – SMOKING KILLS!

arlborough’s dustbins were emptied on time during the cold period at Christmas, the last Marlborough Town Council meeting was told. Those responsible were to be congratulated.

THE ADVISER

Milestones in a busy life

I

have said to Geoff Adams the proprietor of this happy little paper that I would like to continue with my articles for a while and he has agreed. I have made so many new friends and cemented relationships with old friends that the exercise over two years has been for me a very worthwhile venture. I must commend The Adviser’s Chris as being a splendid colleague to work with. He has given me wonderful support and always with a smile. Hungerford always has been and always will be my motivating force, but as Margaret and I are now past 80 I must consider the muddle I create in researching these articles. The Adviser allow me to write in batches of 12 or more and it is concentrated writing for a period; the dining room table disappears. My office overflows, the chairs have mounds of paper and if you all thought this information was carried in my head, then, how wrong you would be. I have always retained documents, minutes, newspaper cuttings, programmes, score cards, letters etc and one day it will be passed to our town archives. When I was voted in as Citizen of the Century and the last 100 years in the year 2000 it was an amazing great honour and one that I shall always treasure; but now I must consider Margaret and even beyond this; what will my sons do with all this paperwork? I have a cherished copy of Summers “Story of Hungerford and my record of public office is detailed on the front pages. The Adviser itself made quite a statement in February 2000 and there the matter rests. -Continued next week...
