Holidays - for many a time to rush to the hot spots and laze on the beach, but what about going on holiday to work? If you are interested in working-holidays now is the time to apply, and Alison Rice has been poring over ' brochures on being a cowperson in Australia, community work in Korea, excavating in Milton Keynes as well as the more popular grape-picking and working on kibbutzim.
Dr Alan Maryon-Davfs jogs in to the studio this week to make a lighthearted report on the state of health in the USA. Are the Americans pill-popping hypochondriacs? Do they really all see ' shrinks And why is such a health-fanatical nation bursting at the seams with fast-foods and obesity?

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
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.
