Live Longer Wales

The Shape of Wales

Live Longer Wales is a season of programmes from BBC Cymru Wales inspiring us to change our lives.

We're getting fatter and we don't seem to notice or care much. How fat are we and why should we care? Steve Evans goes on a journey to find out why Welsh people are becoming obese and what we can do about it if we want a longer life. On his journey he meets women on the shop floor who are quite happy with their weight even though one of them has diabetes; a teacher who's putting in the time to get children playing again and world obesity expert Professor Kelly Brownell in North Carolina who has a warning for Wales.
