With a brother dedicated to punk rock stardom at any cost and a drunken father who chases skirt between robotic dancing lessons from the TV, young Senka stands as much chance of nurture as the hero of Truffaut's 400 Blows. The amazing thing about Ogorodnikov's film is that it was made in Russia. Clearly, plenty of Soviet teenies share the nihilistic feelings of their Western counterparts, and the extensive footage of safety-pin chic at concerts perhaps points to a sound export instinct on the director's part. Senka's brother Kostya is under pressure from Howmuch, a very heavy rocker, to steal a synthesiser from the Community Centre, so to protect him Senka steals it himself. The story occupies little more space than the music, but the performances are splendid enough to lodge Senka's predicament in the heart.

Beat the Burglar is a BBC television programme that uses ex-professional burglar Mike Fraser to break into people's homes with their permission to show how vulnerable they can be. Forensic teams then harvest the evidence for analysis by experts before giving the homeowners a home security makeover. The ex-professional burglar shows them what a real burglary would be like while they watch from a camera. Firstly he shows them how easy it is to enter their homes, then he takes their prized possessions. Later he returns the items and tells them how they can improve security in their homes. At the end of the show their home's security is improved and the ex-burglar returns to see whether they have beaten the burglar. Beat the Burglar is presented by Dominic Littlewood . The show is currently showing on UKTV and was previously shown on BBC One in Spring 2005.
