How many times since the Holocaust, or the attrocities of the Khmer Rouge, or 9-11, have we wondered what was going through the minds of Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot or Osama Bin Laden? New Zealand philosopher and psychologist Professor Rom Harre has spent much of his professional life trying to understand why people do such things. He's analyzed the minds of al Qaeda terrorists and the language they use, and the CIA turned to Professor Harre to help explain why people become terrorists. (22′06″)
The feature album is David Byrne and Brian Eno's second joint album. This week Brian Eno won his first ever BAFTA award for his soundtrack for tv show 'Top Boy', a thriller about gangs which screened on Channel 4 in the UK. He's a former member of Roxy Music and pioneer of ambient music, and went on to become a producer for the likes of David Bowie, U2 and of course Talking Heads. (1′40″)

It's a tough job but someone's got to do it, modelling those incredible creations from the World of Wearable art. If you've ever fancied yourself a model, now's your chance.

No experience is required, and they're looking for models and dancers. Malia Johnston is the artistic director, and she describes what they're looking for. (4′41″)
