Mike Dilger abstains from alcohol to investigate the impact this will have on his health. Alastair McKee explores if the success of otter conservation is threatening fish stocks.
Mike Dilger takes on a challenge to give up booze for the whole of December, including Christmas Day. What impact will it have on his health and lifestyle? Mike also asks whether Britain's drinking habit has got out of control, with the elderly population particularly at risk of developing alcohol-related illnesses.
