The first part of a two-part programme on the tobacco industry will air tonight on BBC 2 and will feature TARG's research. In the programme, 'Burning Desire: The Seduction Of Smoking', Peter Taylor will investigate why people smoke, the role of the tobacco industry and tobacco control legislation (see Peter's article in the Guardian for more information).

In February this year, Peter interviewed Marcus Munafo and Olivia Maynard from TARG about their research on plain (standardised) packaging of cigarettes. A short extract of this will be shown on the programme tonight.

The programme will air on Thursday 29 May at 9.30pm on BBC 2.
