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.
