A private war

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 09 January 2013

Justin Rowlatt interviews a man who has set up his own private navy. Naturally enough he plans to use it to battle pirates. It's a serious business though - even if he makes engaging the enemy sound like high tea with the Queen.

We also explore the difference between men's fashion and style as London aims to become the key destination in the world of men's fashion. Rowlatt reports from the fashion frontline and meets a top rapper, an 80s rock star and Bilbo Baggins himself, Hobbit actor Martin Freeman.
