In this issue of Saga Magazine : Spring officially arrives this month in the UK, and the March issue of Saga Magazine is packed with new beginnings and people who’ve pushed the boundaries of convention. Our cover star, Ricky Gervais, is never one to shy away from taboo subjects and he tackles a particularly tricky one in his latest show After Life.
In a similarly bold vein, the brilliant Rudolph Nureyev well and truly broke the mould of previous, more passive, male ballet dancers. Feeling constricted by the Russian dance establishment, his defection to the West was as dramatic as his most memorable performances with Dame Margot Fonteyn.
It’s not only big stars, however, who have the capacity to break the rules and start afresh. We meet two people who, when life took a devastating turn for the worse, seized the opportunity to transform their lives for the better.
In our money pages, Paul Lewis lifts the lid on the devastating effects new changes to the pension credit rules could have on some couples. And in our health section, Patsy Westcott reports on the medical reasons why gardening really is good for you, and elsewhere looks at what you can do to shake the harmful habit of adding salt to your diet.
All that, plus our regular round-up of the arts, family dilemmas solved by Jo Brand, Dr Mark Porter’s Q&As, our £100 prize crosswords and a last laugh with radio DJ Mark Radcliffe. Enjoy!
