In the second episode, Shaun takes a snapshot of how Australia is drinking today, with interesting results.
Overall we are drinking less than in the past, and the rise of wine has seen us become more sophisticated in our drinking. But many of us are still drinking a lot.
Retirees are drinking more and women also – especially busy mothers. This comes as doctors establish strong links between alcohol and cancer which are even higher for females.
But first Shaun gets drunk for the first time in decades, under strict medical supervision, as part of a university research project … and yes, his first hangover in decades follows the next morning.
