Growing up with the Mafia

On the latest edition of Outlook, Matthew Bannister talks to Rita Gigante, whose father was Vincent "The Chin" Gigante, one of America's most powerful Mafia bosses.

Also on the programme: Izzat Majeed, the Pakistani businessman who set out to revive the music scene in Lahore by building a studio and recruiting musicians who'd given up playing.

We hear from Professor Hugh Herr, the American mountaineer who lost both his legs in an accident but then designed his own bionic replacements. And we visit Cinema Tuk Tuk, the mobile film project bringing movies to remote villages in Laos.
