The tragic fate of the Amsterdam family is well known from The Diary of Anne Frank. In the second of two talks, Gordon Sander , the grandson of the family in the Hague, tells of the dangers and near-discoveries as the Nazis flushed out the Jews from the secret refuges that had been their prisons for nearly three years.

When the Euro 2000 championships descended into riotous mayhem caused by British fans, the Government rushed legislation through Parliament. Yet such violence is nothing new: in the mid-fifties Lord Boothby condemned rioting following a screening of the film Rock around the Clock, while in the mid-sixties gangs of mods and rockers terrorised bank holiday crowds on Brighton beach "because we like hitting people". Professor Dick Hobbs traces the evolution of the British thug across more than half a century and seeks to understand the motivation of those involved in what seems little more than mindless Violence. Producer Paul Kobrak
