A Bitter Taste of Beauty

A Bitter Taste of Beauty is a six-part series exploring the modern obsession with the body beautiful.

Our society has become obsessed with diet tips, weight loss, perfect skin, six packs and celebrity status. Never before has there been such an emphasis on attaining the perfect body and the flawless face. Why is beauty seen as the preserve of the young and who are the beautiful people? And why are men increasingly becoming victims of an obsession which was seen solely the preserve of women?
