Goodwill Begins at Christmas

If you are involved in an exciting local scheme designed to help people in need - the elderly perhaps, or people in hospital or the handicapped - why not ring in and tell us about it. And if you have a good idea but you are not quite sure how to get it off the ground maybe Ian Bruce of the National Volunteer Centre and Elisabeth Hoodless of Service Volunteers can help.

John Maddox asks PROFESSOR JEAN-CLAUDE PECKER Of the College de France in Paris, and PROFESSOR MARTIN REES of the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge: are there any holes in the Big Bang theory?
