There's been severe criticism of the Government's five hundred million pound flagship scheme to protect the UK's borders from crime and terrorism. Peter Allen and Anna Foster speak to the man behind the report, John Vine, the Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration. As the leader of the Taliban in Pakistan tells the BBC he's ready for serious talks with the country's government, Peter and Anna find out who he is and what conditions he's placed on possible discussions. Plus the passenger forced to land a light aircraft after the pilot fell ill tells Drive that afterwards he felt he "could do with a cup of tea".
