My name is Gaggan and I work for BBC’s Inside Out programme based in Leeds. It has been brought to our attention that a number of medical drug trials were carried out on children and inmates at various detention centres and approved schools which apparently were not approved by the children/inmates or their guardians. The authorities apparently used the children/ inmates as guinea pigs and carried out a number of medical trials and experiments. I would like to speak to people who have had similar experiences and were a part of such medical trials during the 60’s,70’s,80’s and 90’s.
I am keen on speaking to people who have had similar experiences especially from the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire areas as I work for the local BBC Yorkshire station. But I would love to hear from people outside Yorkshire and Lincolnshire too.
Please can you get in touch with me with your name, phone number and a brief note about your experiences on : Gaggan.Sabherwal@bbc.co.uk and I will call you for an off the record chat.
