Traditional car design in Eastern Europe has lagged decades behind the west, but with the new Lada Samara, the Russians seem to have caught up. Sue Baker visits the Togliatti factory in Central Russia to drive one of the first right-hand drive versions of the new hatchback.
This week's car of the decade is the Austin Mini, a symbol of the 60s. Chris Goffey samples the cheaper end of the 4x4 market - how useful are they as transport for families in rural areas? Producer JON BENTLEY

: 40 Minutes

A new series of films about our lives - now. Convictions
What makes people criminals? Will we ever learn to deal with violence and crime? Is punishment the answer? The Jales brothers are always in and out of jail.
John Jales and his brothers Brian and Philip are crooks. They've never made the big time, rarely made the papers - but they have long criminal records, and spend most of their lives locked in cells.
Now, as they await trial yet again, they talk of the criminal life. Mostly it's about violence - the violence of robbery and arrests, hatred and retribution, thuggery.
In this frank and disturbing film the Jales brothers give a rare insight into the world of the criminal, and into the minds of those for whom violence is the answer - whatever the question. Narrator

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
