INSIDE EVERY FAT MAN
If you are feeling guilty about Christmas over-indulgence, this programme offers you some timely advice. Fatness affects fifty per cent of the population and one woman in sixteen is more than fifty per cent overweight. It is perhaps because it is so common that this growing problem is ignored. We know fat people are funny and jolly, but the medical evidence is that obesity is a killing disease.
Tonight's programme investigates the bio-chemical causes, the psychological origins of the problem and takes a look at some promising scientific research.
But it is the fat themselves who talk of the embarrassment and even loneliness their fatness can bring, and the frustrations of trying to lose weight.

The LSD of seafaring
The Money Programme tonight at 9.5 looks at sailing. For centuries the British have been going down to the sea in ships, but never in the numbers they are today. Sailing has become Britain's biggest leisure industry with a turnover of £60-million a year

Sailing has become Britain's biggest leisure industry with a turnover of £ 60-million a year, yet Britain's yachtsmen-from the men who own ocean racers worth thousands of pounds down to the smallest family sailor-are at the mercy of an industry run by hundreds of small firms, many of whom are inefficient or are in the business for the fun of the game. It's tough on the sailor whose only concern is to sail for pleasure. He wants the kind of service at the kind of price that only efficiency can give.
Brian Widlake talks to yachtsmen, both famous and unknown; to manufacturers, large and small; and arrives at conclusions which may be unpalatable to the industry but which, in the end, everyone whose pleasure and business is sailing will have to consider seriously if the water around us is to be used as it should-as part of our relaxation and heritage.
