Features in December 2008:


Blind Masseurs
We find out about an interesting challenge to an employment law in South Korea. The law, passed in 1963, stops people who aren't blind from working as massage therapists. But isn't this unfair?

Aboriginal cricketer
Yvonne Archer is joined by William Kremer for a sporting programme as they find out about the life and times of Eddie Gilbert, one of the world's greatest cricketers.

World's biggest sandwich
Feeling hungry? Well, Yvonne Archer is joined by William Kremer to talk about what might possibly be the biggest sandwich in the world!

'Jargon' is a noun that describes specific groups of words and expressions. They're only used by people in special or technical situations - because they are the only people who really understand! Join Yvonne and William for a brief insight into the jargon we use here, at BBC Learning English.

Warm hands, warm heart?
Yvonne Archer is joined by William Kremer and find out whether his hands are cold or warm. But it's all in the name of science as they try to find out whether there's any truth to saying that a person with warm hands has a warm heart.
