    Dear Teachers

    Okay, so I am a big John Oliver fan :) He has the ability to make the most dull topic fascinating and informative. Opiod addiction is a major issue at the moment and I believe this would be a great way of introducing the topic. However, please note that there is some bad language (which is bleeped) which means you will need to watch it before you use it. Enjoy, Andrew

    Hi All-sorry, I've just watched to the end of this piece and it probably is unsuitable for students, apart from the swearing. Apologies all round-nevertheless it makes for great background material for teachers to watch on their own to understand how painkillers are handed out like smarties nowadays....
