Alaska - Oil on the Rocks
When the Exxon Valdez ran aground off the coast of Alaska last March, it was the worst oil spill in American history. Now the implications may affect the future of America's entire oil industry. Robin Denselow reports on the angry debate where the oil men and environmentalists are in direct conflict.
The companies are poised to develop America's last wilderness, Alaska's
Northern Arctic shore.
The oil men say drilling is essential for a supply of cheap oil. But, after the disaster, there is increasing pressure to keep them away. Producer HELEN JENKINS Editor TIM GARDAM

Presented by Gaz Top and Dr Marsha Morgan. Alcohol and Women
The age of sexual equality has helped to create a lucrative new market for the drink industry - that of the young female drinker.
Unfortunately, for these women nature has dealt them the losing hand - women's bodies are not able to withstand alcohol in the same way as men's.
This programme explains why this is so, what guidelines apply during pregnancy and whether booze can affect conception. With the help of comedy sketches featuring Rowan Atkinson , Griff Rhys Jones , Helen Lederer , Susie Blake , Moray Hunter and John Docherty , Norman Lovett and Patricia Routledge.
