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 MONEY PROGRAMME

Troubled Waters
Drake and Nelson,
Chichester and Alec Rose ...
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.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
