Industrialists and teachers, universities and employers seem to agree wholeheartedly on one thing: England's post-16 academic education is far too narrow. Are A-levels an immense and unnecessary hurdle for all but the top
20 per cent of school children? Does the present system create illiterate art students? Do we put too much emphasis on specialist academic achievement at this age? Martin Young looks at existing alternatives to
A-levels and asks what is the best education for the majority of Britain's 16-19 year-olds.

The Poison that Waits
Something unique and fatal lurks on the Pacific island of Guam. It could have implications for the hundreds of thousands who suffer from the diseases of ageing, such as senile dementia (or Alzheimer's disease) and Parkinson's disease in Britain. On Guam, these devastating diseases strike decades earlier and 100 times more frequently than elsewhere. For 40 years, scientists tried to find the cause: a virus, aluminium in the water, something in the food .. ? They got nowhere. Then in 1982, the research took an unexpected twist. A team, largely English, began re-assess an old, discarded theory about a slow poison. They are close to a breakthrough.
