Experts now believe that inactivity is as dangerous as smoking
20 cigarettes a day, so it is a disturbing thought that today's children use up 25 per cent fewer calories than they did in the 1930s. If their lifestyle isn't changed, these couch potato kids will be susceptible to heart attacks at an early age and may cause a major national health crisis in years to come.
Justin Wallace , who works for
St Edmundsbury Borough Council leisure services department, was so shocked by statistics such as these that he made this programme, The Kids Aren't
Alright. In it he charts the impact of modern sedentary lifestyles not just on young people but on all our health prospects.
Wallace, who has two children himself, describes today's young people as being "battery-reared rather than free-range", partly because of the increased use of cars but also as a result of parents' fear of street crime and violence. In little more than a generation, we have taught our children to watch television rather than go out, and to expect danger from all strangers and strange environments. The combination, he says, is a recipe for trouble. Producer Mike MacCormack Senes producer Sue Davidson

In the programme this week, David Stafford goes bird-watching when he visits
Grassholm Island, ten miles off the Pembrokeshire coast in South Wales. The island is home to some 30,000 pairs of gannets - birds with a wing span of six feet and a prodigious appetite. The birds are aggressive creatures but mate with the same partner for life. Back on the mainland,
Ray Mears offers advice to hikers whose backpacks give way miles from nowhere. Also,
Rachel Polkinghorne learns about the Highland Clearances, one of the most traumatic events in Scottish history.
Finally, there is advice from Mr Crabtree when he goes fishing for carp. Producer Kathryn Moore

The first of two programmes about teenage attitudes towards love and sex.
Getting It Together. Who should teenagers turn to for advice on sex and contraception? This programme follows a young couple as they visit a family planning clinic for the first time. They find that free and confidential advice is readily available. Also, two women talk about the choices they made on finding out that they were pregnant. In the studio discussion which follows, teenagers talk frankly about sexuality and relationships. Presented by Kirsty Wark. Series prod ucerCassieBraban

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
