In the European food-poisoningcharts Spain is number one, accordingto a Watchdog survey reported in this holiday special.
Using a hidden camera, environmental officers Dr Lisa
Ackerley and Graham Murphy , a husband-and-wife team, went undercover in the restaurants and kitchens of 28 Majorcan hotels to discover the unappetising truth. Of food samples taken, more than half failed to comply to local hygiene regulations.
Swimming-pool accidents are another problem. During the holiday season, a British child is taken into intensive care every week at the Son Dureta Hospital in Majorca.
And Spain is not alone. In

Will government plans to spend £23 billion on Britain's roads ease traffic jams or encourage more people to take to their cars? Transport secretary John MacGregor does not believe the public rejects the prospect of bigger and better roads, saying: "If they felt that strongly, they wouldn't drive as much as they do."
But former minister
George Walden MP, argues: "They [the government] have no idea where our transport policy is going other than building more and more roads for more and more cars."
With some Tory backbenchers arguing against government policy Mr MacGregor faces opposition other than banner-waving protesters.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
