Justin Wallace from the Leisure Services Department of Edmundsbury Council charts the impact of modern lifestyles on the nation's health prospects. Some experts suggest that inactivity is as dangerous to health as smoking twenty cigarettes a day. In little more than a generation, children have been encouraged to stay in and watch television rather than go out and play, due to parental fears of danger from strangers and unfamiliar environments. This physical and social inactivity the programme suggests is a recipe for disaster.
