Booze Culture

Television (Full Length) – 1994

We’re seeing the rise of the cafe society and we’re seeing people take alcohol as a regular part of life and, despite all of the predictions of doom and gloom from the temperance movement, in fact alcohol consumption continues to decline and there are less and less problems with alcohol abuse.
– Doug McKay, Managing Director, Lion Breweries
If we didn’t have alcohol in this society, what a wonderful job we could do in dealing with crime. Either the offender is affected by alcohol or the victim is affected by alcohol. It plays a massive role in our work.
– Inspector Derek McKeen, NZ Police, Area Controller, Manukau East
