Help and advice. Emma B and Dr Mark Hamilton address the pressures of achieving the "perfect body". Call [number removed]. Off air: [number removed].
9.00pm R1 Research tells us that teenage girls fear being fat more than cancer or nuclear war. So it's not surprising, given tonight's subject is the pressure to achieve "the perfect body", that the Sunday Surgery team are expecting more calls than usual. But it won't just be girls reaching for the phones; the number of young men with eating disorders grows by the week, including those with low self-esteem because they're not muscle-bound hulks.

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.
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.
