“It is not Butch to Binge” said Mr. Paul Watson world renowned documentary maker and producer of the BBC 2 documentary 'Rain in my heart' the key note speaker at the press launch of Drink Sense: know your limits on alcohol use.

Speaking about why he made the documentary 'Rain in my heart' about four people struggling with alcohol addiction Paul said “too much reality television was sweeping away very important issues. Drinking too much has become quite acceptable. Tackling Alcohol abuse cannot be delegated. We are not the nanny state.
