    Max Mosley20110301

    Former motor racing boss Max Mosley speaks to John Humphrys.

    ,the former President of Motor Racing's Governing body the FIA, has lived his life in the constant shadow of controversy: his parents were Oswold Mosley and Diana Mitford whose wedding was attended by Adolf Hitler. But in 2008 the full beam of public scrutiny fell directly upon Max Mosley himself, when the News of the World ran a story revealing his interest in sadomasochism and involvement with prostitutes.

    In a candid interview, Max Mosley discusses the impact on his life of this now infamous story.

    Mosley successfully sued the tabloid for breach of privacy and proved in court that the allegations of a Nazi element to the orgy were entirely false.

    He has now taken his case to the European Court of Human Rights; he wants the British government to be forced to introduce a law which would require journalists to inform people about stories featuring them, before they appear. This would allow time for an injunction to be issued, preventing publication. Journalists are against this proposal, saying it would hamper legitimate investigative journalism.

    In this programme Max Mosley tells John Humphrys about the moment his wife first saw the story in the News of the World (she thought it was a joke) and describes the impact the revelations about his extra-marital sexual activities have had on his family, and his marriage. He also reiterates his determination to see a change in the law and reveals he had a substantial fund available to carry on his campaign for many years.

    Professor David Nutt20110315

    The sacked Government drugs advisor, Professor David Nutt, talks to John Humphrys.

    Professor David Nutt talks to John Humphrys about his short, controversial tenure as Chair of the Government's Advisory Council on the Misuse of drugs.

    He wrote a contentious paper comparing a made-up condition 'equasy' (an addiction to horse-riding) with the dangers of ecstasy.

    He recalls a phone-call from the then Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, who was infuriated by what he had written.

    She felt he was belittling the dangers of a Class A drug, and attempting to meddle in Government policy.

    Unbowed, he then gave a lecture where he re-stated his views.

    By this time Alan Johnson was Home Secretary and Professor David Nutt - in what he describes as an 'e-dismissal' - was sacked from his advisory role.

    Professor Nutt describes the events leading up to his dismissal, and discusses the impact on him personally when The Sun ran a piece illustrated by photos of his children, one of them apparently drunk (she wasn't) the other smoking a roll-up (of tobacco).

    The Sun later printed an apology.
