Some 6,000 people each year suffer from anorexia nervosa, and it's becoming increasingly common among young men, as well as women. It's a complex illness, a form of depression which leads its victims to starve themselves - sometimes to death. How much is known about its causes? Is it connected with the fashionable emphasis on slimness and dieting? Is it a reaction to a certain kind of family pressure? And, if there s an anorexic in your family, how can you help?
To answer your questions about the nature of this disturbing and complex illness and the best ways to treat it are
Professor Arthur Crisp ,
Professor of Psychiatry at St
George's Hospital, London and Nancy Pearce , founder of Anorexic Family Aid.

The Raffles Hotel, Singapore Fables of the Exotic East
One of the world's best-loved hotels celebrates it's 100th anniversary this year. Somerset Maugham once wrote that the Raffles Hotel stands for 'all the fables of the exotic East'. Noel Coward sang in its palm court, seduced by the sweet-scented frangipani. Today, thousands of tourists sit among its white pillars and tropical greens sipping the famous cocktail, Singapore Gin Sling, and toasting Raffles's colonial past. Susan Marling traces the history of Raffles and brings back some of those many fables of the exotic East.

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.
