Television star Anneka Rice yesterday launched a 366-day countdown to next year'

Television star Anneka Rice yesterday launched a 366-day countdown to next year's Garden Fesival Wales "to be the biggest and best yet." The celebrity promised sunshine and flowers on May 1st 1992 as a shivering crowd of 500 watched her tear a reluctant-to-move tarpaulin from a clock on a windswept, bleak Ebbw Vale hillside. Children released a rainbow cloud of 3,660 ballons as others took to the air simultaneously elsewhere in South Wales to herald the 56m event. - 1st May 1991

Smallpox virus Featured 1 May 1991 Print

Smallpox virus

False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the smallpox virus (medical name Variola), which causes high fever & spots that quickly develop into pustules. The virus is transmitted by droplets of sputum (coughed up saliva & mucus) or pus from the skinpocks of an infected person. Most patients recover, although complications such as pneumonia may prove fatal. An attack confers near lifelong immunity. Immunization has all but eradicated the disease, although pockets of resistance remain. This specimen is from one of the last English patients. Magnification: x40, 000 at 6x4.5cm size
