YOUNG, DUMB AND DANGEROUS
WEDNESDAY, 9.55pm, RTE2
This three-part documentary analyses the well-worn subject of the association between young people and crime.
We are told that about 50% of serious assaults are carried out by individuals under 30 - which comes as no big surprise - and that the vast majority of these occur at weekends.
So-called one-punch assaults, which are most frequently committed by drunken youths, are the subjects of this first division.
The series was made with the co-operation of An Garda Siochana and the PSNI.
