Three young boys

As part of the BBC's Generation Next season, the BBC's Robin Lustig asks what does it really mean to be an adult

He explores what "youth" means in different societies and cultures worldwide in this five-part documentary series.

Part Four - Criminality

Robin looks at the legal, social and cultural frameworks separating the "child" from the "adult".

Under-18s are more likely to experiment, take drugs, break the law, and even commit suicide.

In this programme, Robin discovers that criminality tends to begin around the age of 13, peak at 17 and disappear almost completely in early adulthood.
