A Long Hot Summer 8.00pm R4
The violence in some British inner cities this summer makes this series of two programmes all the more appropriate, although the producers set out with the intention of marking an anniversary: it is 20 years since the Brixton and Toxteth riots that were to shake the first Thatcher government. Tonight's programe is about Brixton and reporter Gerry Northam talks to people who were involved on both sides of the barricades. He also examines the aftermath, in particular the findings of the inquiry by Lord Scarman, who recommended changes in police procedure. Has anything changed? If so, has it changed for the better? The Brixton riots were the culmination of longrunning distrust between the Metropolitan Police and the black community, a factor that has a clear echo 20 years on.

Official statistics suggest 20,000 died, although observers claim it could have been twice as many. Geologist Roger Bilham fears this could be a foretaste of a far more catastrophic event. His studies of the Himalayas suggest that northern India is overdue seven massive earthquakes, each one dwarfing the most recent. Disaster expert Bill McGuire joins Bilham in India as he probes the destructive forces that lurk within the subcontinent.
