According to many scientists, 15 per cent of
all greenhouse gases will come from
aeroplanes by 2050.
The more aeroplanes there are in t he sky, the
more dangerous flying gets.
Tourism has a bad impact on places:
• water is diverted from agricul tural and/or
poor areas
• ir generates a lot of rubbish
• it dest roys countryside that is built on
• it dest roys countrys ide that is wa lked on
• it pushes wi ldlife away
• it destroys tradi tional customs and ways
of life.
Tourism is fun.
It benefits local economies.
It is the world's largest industry.
It pro vides employment to many who
otherwise wo uld have no jobs.
It helps peoples of the world to understand
each other.
If you restrict it, only the rich will be ab le to

under her arm. She went into a shop and sold t hem
for a lot of money. Then, in herdream, she went to a
depart ment store and bought a wonde rful dress,
some pretty shoes and a bea utiful coat .
After t hat, she went back to the first shop and
looked at her pict ures in the window. Alot of people
were buying them. One man bought t hree. He was
ta ll, he had da rk hai r and he was verygood-looking.
'Who painted t hese pictures?' he aske d the sho p
assistant.
'That girl there', came the ans wer.
The good -looking man walked up to Mariann e.
' I've never see n paint ings like these before,' he said.
e Who goes round the wo rld ? .
f Who becomes famous?
g When does Marianne have her dre am ?
'One day you' ll be veryfamous. People will buyyour
pict ures all over the world.'
Mariann e was very hap py. ' Howdo you know
t hat ?' she asked.
' Pict ures are my business,' he answe red. ' I buy and
sell them. Will you come and have dinner with me? I
want to tal k a bout your paint ings.'
They had dinner together. The man said, 'Your
paint ings are bea ut iful. But you are even lovelier than
your paintings.'
They danced together that night and they fell in
love. Soon they were married, and then theywent
round the world toget her. Marianne painted hund reds

That was Mariann e' s dream.

in Lon don.
J[M: Wdl , that was Peter Janus reporting from the United Nations.
Now for our next piece we're goi ng over to Sue Ballor in
Vaness, no rth-west France with an incredible story of surviva l.
~ l I E : Yes J im, an d it is a ll incredi ble STOry. Yesterday, a married
co uple, Kevin Mcllwee and hi s wife Beverly, both of rhem from
t he islan d of Jersey, had a mira culous escape af ter plu nging
10,000 feet when the ir par achutes failed to open properly.
Th ey bro ke a numb er of bones, but amazi ngly they' re sti ll alive.
I should explai n th at Kevin (he's 4 7) and Beverl y (just three
yea rs younger) were on thei r hon eymoon . Mr Mcllwee is a
para chu te inst ructor, and persuaded his new wife to do a
tandem jump - that's whe n an instructor jum ps wi t h so meo ne
(in th is case Beverl y) st rapped to him.
66 AUDlD51:RIPT
Th e accident hap pened when rhe first parachute didn't open
properly. Mr Mcllwee tried to solve the problem, but when he
co uldn't, he tri ed to get rid of that chute and usc the second,
emergency par achute t hat skydivers always carry with them.
A few ho urs ago I spo ke to Beverly's father, Dennis
Mur taugh, who explained what happened next. His word s
were spoken by an actor because the line was nor good when
we ta lked .
DENNIS: Unfor t unately, Kevin wasn't a ble to jen ison the firs t
parachute properly so the emergency chute wouldn't open and
t hey just fell faster and faster. Kevin told me t hat they thou ght
that was it, they were going to die.
SUI'.; SOhow did they survive?
DENNIS: It was pure luck, I sup pose. I mean they onl y had ha lf a
parachute to slow t hem down. Th ey hit the ground at an
absolutely fantas tic speed. It could have killed them.
SUE: How does your daughter feel about pa rachuting now?
DENNIS: She's never going to do another jump !
SUE: I' m not sur prised.
DENNIS: She's on ly just starting to realise bow lucky she is. When I
spoke to her she said she was looking out of the window from
her hospital bed enjoy ing seeing the dayl ight and the birds.
SUE: Beverly Mcll wee needs a number of operations and will be in
a wheelcha ir for weeks. She has bro ken bones in her leg, ankl e
and both of her feet. Her hus band bas a brok en leg. Jim?
Thanks very much for t hat report Sue. Wen, that's a
honeymoon those two peopl e will never forget ! And now it's
time for spor t, so over to Simon ...

TO;-';Y: Yes. well, we' ve got two young children so we have ro
choo se our hol idays with them in mind. That' s why we come
to place s like this. Well, it's much mor e enjoyable rhan having
bored children in some horel in the middle of a big city. They
can play wit h ot her children all day, go swi mming or boa ting,
t hat kind of thing. And you know camp sites are getti ng bett er
and better, They've got excellent facilities t hese days. You
should try it.
SANP!t ,\ : I like, you know, advent ure hol ida ys, hackpacking,
wa lking in the mountai ns, t hat kind of thin g. I don't like
tourist resorts, 1 prefer somewhere off the beaten t rack. But it's
gett ing more and mor e difficult to find places like t hat. Th is
year I've already been to Scotland, which was the most
fantastic experience, and next month I' m goi ng trekking in t he
foot hills of t he Andes in Peru. A friend of mine went pony-
t rekking in Iceland once , I'd like to try that.
JOSETTf,: Oh, there's no doubt about it. We just love a bit of luxury
and lazing around. That' s why we go on cruises. We come
back a bit fatt er. of cou rse, but we feel good roo and we've
been to places we don't normally go to. We need ro be a bit
richer than we are, though, Cruises seem to be t he most
expensive vacations in the world. But you do meet nice people ,
tha t' s the besr bit .
:\ IEERA: Now that I' m gett ing older I' m not as energetic as I was.
But I stilllove holidays wi th a bit of interest. I like a bit of
cult ure, you see. So I generally visit ga lleries and museums or
take sightseeing tours to monuments or other places of special
inte rest . Th at's much more satisfying for me. Well, ( am bored
by tourist resort s - all tha t noise, everyone tr ying so ha rd to
enjoy t hemselves. Maybe it's all right when you're 20! But I' m
a bit past that myself. And I don't sunbathe, you see. The most

Parthenon is one of the most beautiful sights I' ve ever seen,
STEVE: I don't really care where I go. I just look for the best

{II:\RUF: And now, at fin.' past eight here on Break fast Television,
it 's time for our weat her report from Samantha Sweet. Good
morning, Sam.
S:\-'I : Hello Char lie, an d goo d morning to a ll of you watching.
As usual. everyt hing depends 011 where you live this morning.
Some of you wi ll be luckier than others. We've got everything:
rain, hea vy snowfall. freezing conditio ns, but suns hine too.
Right, so let 's start with the sout h-west of the country. As you
can see from [he chart, it's started quite col d - abo ut 3 degrees
centig rade - hut it'll war m up as the da y got.'s on, reaching
about eight degrees by t he aftern oon. It 's go ing to be clou dy
with sunny peri ods , I think, bur it 's goin g to be a cold nigh t,
though, down below freezing - about minus J. I should think ,
So he warned!
AUmOS[IPT 69
In the south-east, thi ngs are much the same. though nor quire
as wa rm as in t he south-west. But I don't expect temperatures
to fall below freezing to night. That's because of a warmer
breeze co ming in from the Channel.
In the midd le of the country, t hings are a hit 1110re conf used.
Right now it's abo ut 5 degrees cent igrade, cloudy, and with
some light ra in. But rhar sit uat ion is going to change as the day
goes on , and by the end of t he day it will pr ob a bly he ra ining
quire heavily and (he rai n will conti nue through t he night , only
easi ng up tomorrow morning. But don '[ ex pect much d ry
weat her in [he next few days.
Things aren't qui te so bad in Wales and the west. Here the rain
will gradually die away in the: late afremoon.vo people can
expect quite a dry night, though tomorrow looks like being a
da r of scattered showers.
Up t he cast coast of t he cou ntry, in t he north, and furthe r
nort h into Scotl and it' s pretty col d already, as an yon e t here
knows. It 's about minus 2 degrees cenrigradc. with heavy
cloud, hut that should go lip to about I degree du ring the
morni ng. nut the outlook do esn't look good. Expect some
snow by midday, starting qu ite light, but gradually increasi ng
so that by t he evening it wi ll be heavy, with blizzard-like
cond itio ns on the roa d, so do be careful. In fact the police have
just issued advice to mo torists not to travel ;H all unless their
journey is absolutely necessary. Temperatures tonight will drop
to about minus 6 degrees.
And what of tomor row? As I said. in t he middle of the
cou nt ry, it's going to he wet and clo udy, scattered showers with
the occasiona l burs t of hea vier rainfall. In t he north an d cast,
people shou ld sett le in for a cold spell wit h more snowfall ove r
the next few days. Not quir e so had in t he sout h and west,
t hough. Here [her e wi ll he some sunshi ne - when it isn' t
rain ing, that is.
And tha t's t he end of thi s morning's forecast. Char lie?
U H RI n: : Th anks, Sam. By t he way, you won' r he worried about
t he wea t her for the nex t few da ys, will you?
S:\.\ I: :-':0 . Charlie, I won't. I' m off on ho liday ro t he sunny

.\ I ATTH f.\'I: ': I th ink t hat to ur ism is a bad thin g because it mak es
people fly all over the \vorld and, according to many scient ists,
15 per cent of all greenhouse gases will come from aeroplanes
by 205 0. And as mor e aeroplanes fly it gets more dan gerous
up t here in the sky.
And t hat's nor all. Tour ism has a bad impact on the places
where touri..ts go, Warer is diver ted from agric ult ural areas -
and the poor suffe r.
Tourism generates a lot of rubbish. It des troys cou ntryside and
wildlife disappears. And worst of all it des troys t radit ional
customs.
Those ar c some of the reasons why I do n' t appr ove of tourism.
.\ I....RTH:\: I am in favour of to urism because. more than anyt hing
else. it's fun. It benefits local economi cs and anyvvay, it' s the
\vodd's largest indu st ry.
One of til l ' most important aspects of tourism is rhur it
pro vides cmployrnenr for ma ny people who wouldn't have a
job without it. And tourism helps the different peoples of the
worl d unde rstand each other;
If tourism is rest ricted, only the rich will he able to t ravel, and
