More or Less

The final installment of this series of “More or Less” returns to stress and heart disease, investigates the street price of drugs, and asks why Stephen Eckett believes this coming Friday, 30th May, is a bad day for the UK stock market.

Most importantly, we return to the question of which town has the best ratio of pubs per person – and an apologia for why we think this is important.

4.30pm BST, Radio 4 – or thereafter streaming from the website. And we’ll be back in the Autumn.
