On the eve of the Superbowl in Atlanta, a report from the USA on claims that the very traditions of American team sport, which prides itself on a wholesome family image, may be responsible for a trail of violence and crime. A spate of highly publicised cases, involving groups of athletes accused of sexually assaulting women, has raised disturbing questions about what sport, particularly football, is doing to young men.

The Real
Rasputin WhenGrigoriiEfimovich Rasputin was murdered in 1916, rumour and political expediency set to work to paint him as a villain, responsible for the downfall of the Romanov empire, an insane alcoholic capable of any sexual extravagance. This film biography reappraises the myth of the "Mad Monk", using new information as well as first-hand accounts to rescue Rasputin from unjust historians.
"He wasn'ta a Svengali figure, controlling the Tsarina," says producer Laurence Rees. "He didn't force people to kill themselves. That legacy is desperately unfair."
