The recent mauling to death of five-year-old Ellie Lawrenson by her uncle's pit bull terrier has put dangerous dogs back in the headlines. Phil Kemp reports on the alarming rise in the number of fighting dogs, which were supposedly outlawed 15 years ago in an amendment to the Dangerous
Dogs Act. Kemp meets the young dog owners who are using the canine creatures as fashion accessories, badges of machismo and/or potential weapons.

Expect also to hear regular updates from the match between Six Nations championship contenders
Wales and Ireland at the Millennium Stadium. Plus reaction from yesterday's matches and overnight news from England's cricketers in Australia.
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.
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.
