This week's THE BIG PICTURE headlines Bob Hope and Jerry Colonna as they report on the physical "Shape of the Nation." Also appearing in this report are Bud Wilkinson, famed coach of the University of Oklahoma and special consultant to the President on physical fitness; Bob Richards, former Olympic pole vaulting champion and three-time winner of the U.S. decathlon championship; along with Alan B.
