Part two of “Drugs – A World History” airs on ZDF
SHP Berlin | Humans have been using drugs since the beginning of time. In Ancient Times and the Middle Ages, beer and wine were considered basic food, cannabis was frequently smoked and physicians experimented with opium. Drugs were considered valuable medicine. It was only 200 years ago that the current age of synthetic drugs – and their extreme abuse – began. “Terra X” tells the story of drugs as a part of world history. In addition to the documentary elements, reenactments and cartoons illustrate their use and their harmful effects.
The second part of “Terra X: Drugs – A World History” airs on ZDF on September 2nd, 7.30 pm.
