BBC Panorama looks at knife crime
BBC Panorama recently ran a programme about knife crime. I hadn't realised but the number of people convicted for carrying knives is ten times higher than it used to be.
By visiting this nation's prisons, questions considered by Panorama include reasons why UK youths are arming themselves and why some do this with killing in mind.
Some 34 teenagers were stabbed to death in 2008 across Britain. Terrible statistic.
