Summary As youths riot on the streets of Britain, looting shops and burning buildings, Dateline asks why it's happening and what can be done to stop it.; An investigation into how economic uncertainty in the US has led to an increase in the popularity of white supremacist groups and 126-year-old Luo Meizhen is one of hundreds of very old people in a rural part of China, but what's their secret to such long life?ANARCHY IN THE UKThe pictures of London burning in this week's riots have been likened to wartime attacks leaving streets ablaze, but this time the attacks are coming from within.As mobs of youths maraud through towns and cities across England, looting shops and starting fires, Dateline's Evan Williams gets out on the streets and asks why it's happening.What kind of social problems drive people to act in this way? What can the police and government do to stop it? And what's next for communities where homes and businesses have been destroyed?AMERICA'S NAZI BACKLASHAn investigation to be screened on Sunday's Dateline looks at how economic uncertainty in the US is leading to an increase in the popularity of white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups.Journalist Rick Rowley found movements embracing Nazi symbols and demanding a white-only America, with increasingly extreme rhetoric and a rising following.But while such groups may appear at first glance to be in the minority, Rowley also uncovered links between white nationalists and the high-profile conservative Tea Party movement.So could the racial problems that have dogged the United States in the past be coming to the surface once more?NEVER SAY DIEVideo journalist Adrian Brown travels to China's remote Bama County, which is home to a significant number of the world's oldest people.Luo Meizhen, for example, is believed to be 126 this year, but records simply don't go back to 1885. She's one of 270 local people aged 90 or over... some are even still working.According to locals, their secrets are everything from an abundance of fresh air, to the leadership of Chairman Mao, or even a lack of sex.But with more and more tourists coming to see them, and a push to make the area a centre for health tourism, could the trappings of the modern world end the old way of life?
