The Chief Constable of the West Midlands told Sir David that he was very confident that the killers of two teenage girls in a shooting in Birmingham would be caught. He said that witnesses to the incident had started to come forward.

He said:' I think the community's response will be positive because this is not a gangland member shooting a gangland member.'

And he supported in the introduction of mandatory five year sentences for people caught carrying guns and legislation banning replica guns.

He added:' We need to send a clear message that there is no place for guns on our street.'

Welsh Secretary Peter Hain joined David to talk about the issue facing Wales in 2003.

David also spoke to Sir Nicholas Winton, who was recently ennobled for his work during the Second World War rescuing jewish children from the Nazis.

Vanessa Redgrave and the Chechen former deputy prime minister Akhmed Zakayev joined David to discuss human rights issues.
