Have you bought a diamond recently?

Would you really know where it came from?

Panorama goes deep into Zimbabwe's Marange diamond fields and uncovers evidence of torture camps and widescale killings.

As the international community argues over whether these diamonds should be sold on the open market, we ask if President Robert Mugabe will ever face prosecution for these crimes.

Victoria is 35 and critically ill after a decade of heavy drinking. 45-year old Matthew was so sick from his alcohol abuse he needed a new liver. Brian at 32, drank so much that he ended up living in a cave.

Panorama uncovers the impact alcohol is having on a new and younger generation of problem drinkers and asks whether the government is doing enough to stop us drinking ourselves to death.
