Are Diamonds Forever?
Men have killed for them. They are at the heart of one of the world's biggest smuggling operations. They are said to be a girl's best friend. But behind these more spectacular aspects is one of the world's least reported and most secretive commodity markets.
For more than 40 years under the Oppenheimer family, the South African mining giant De Beers has kept control of the supply and pricing of diamonds. But in the last few months the diamond markets have been thrown into turmoil. Record prices are being paid and diamonds are being hailed as the investor's dream. Are they really?
In The Money Programme Alistair Michie examines what lies behind the new boom in a mysterious market where the Israelis have been trying to outwit both the South Africans and the Russians.

A series of eight contemporary documentaries.
5: Alcamo - The Anatomy of a Mafia Town
The Mafia itself is unfilmable - but the results of its malign activities are. Alcamo is a town of 45,000 people in Western Sicily. Since the war there have been 900 murders in Alcamo and its port Castellamare. But if the methods of the Sicilian Mafia are less gory today, they are no less pervasive. The tendrils of corruption encircle all pillars of society, the church, the law, politics and the land.
Gaia Servadio , journalist and author, analyses the concept of protection, extortion, paternalism and silence that is called ' the Mafia ' - in the island that gave it its name and in the town that gave it its notoriety.
