A look at the automotive cultures in six countries around the world.
Detroit. First it was called Detroit and then, when most American cars were made there, it became known as the "Motor City". To lovers of music and cars the world over, it will always be known as "Motown". Then the effects of the 1967 riots and Japan's successful inroad into the US car market left the centre of this once great city a virtual ghost town. But Clarkson finds that the manufacturers are fighting back and that a pulse still beats in the heart of Detroit.

Last in a five-part series in which leaders in the bloodiest conflict in Europe since the Second World War explain the chain of events leading to the collapse of Yugoslavia.
This is the story of three years of international failure in Bosnia. The main participants tell how promises to the Bosnian Muslims were made and broken, how the decision by the international community not to use military force strengthened the position of the all-powerful Bosnian Serbs. The Americans then describe how they decided the only way to break the deadlock was to give full backing to President Tudjman of Croatia and to talk him into forming an alliance with the Bosnian Muslims - even though Muslim blood was fresh on his hands.
