A second series of 12 programmes aimed at giving direct help to those having difficulty with O-level maths. 3: Indices
Most of us can accept that -4 has a clear meaning, but when we see the same —4 written as an index it takes on a strangely unreal air. Yet indices arise out of a simplification, a shorthand way of writing down multiplication. It is this new way of putting down the mathematics that is unfamiliar, not its implications.

How Much Can You Drink?
Alcohol is a drug. We're often told that too much endangers our health - yet there's also some evidence that moderate drinkers live longer than non-drinkers. So how much is too much? Exactly when does the physical damage begin? And what about individual differences - for instance why do some light drinkers develop liver disease and other heavy drinkers get away with it?
There's a significant difference in men's and women's capacity to cope with alcohol, and American research now indicates that pregnant women shouldn't drink any alcohol at all.
Tonight's programme asks: what are the effects of alcohol on all of us who enjoy a regular drink? Narrator PAUL vaughan

Shamis Dirlr grew up in a traditional family in Aden: ' A girl's place was to cook, get married, have children: that was the life.' Rebelliousness brought Shamis to England, and a new set of pressures: isolation, bad housing, and so on. Now She organises other women in the Somali Women's Association in London's East End. Do her activities mean she's turned her back on the Muslim faith in which she was brought up?

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

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.
