with Judith Hann
On that rather special birthday, Judith Hann discovers that her party guests all have their pet theories for facing up to 40. James Hunt favours exercise; Russell Grant plumps for vitamins; Lulu and Wendy Richard think diet's the key to a longer, healthier life. Not unnaturally Judith turns to science to find out which - if any - of them are right, as she tries to discover The Best We Can Do to stay young.
This week she discovers some chemical clues to the way people age.

The Wreck of the Mary Rose
4: Back to Life The hull of the Mary Rose was raised on 11 October 1982.
Millions ot television viewers and thousands of spectators watchedspellbound. Now, near Nelson's flagship The Victory, the flagship of Henry VIII rests in dry dock. 'Dry' apart from the constant spray of water that's poured on the timbers to keep them from drying out and breaking. In this fourth report on the greatest underwater excavation that Great Britain has ever seen, Chronicle re-examines the hull and talks to the research groups advising on conservation, reconstruction and display. It also looks at the work being done on the ship's artefacts; the boots and jerkins worn by the men, the tools and weapons they used, the bones of the cattle they ate and, prior to their interment this summer, at their own bones which provide remarkable information about their age, strength and state of health.
The Mary Rose excavation is unique, not least because so much has survived underwater that would have decayed on land. Work continues on the preservation of longbows, arrows, cannon and gold coins. But perhaps the most remarkable work is being done on the sludge contained in bottles and chests. This has produced straw, grape skins, seeds and even Tudor fleas - proof that the flea comb found in a sailor's jerkin was a necessary item for a comfortable life on board.
