Summary TUNA WARSThey've been fishing the waters of the Indian Ocean for generations, but the traditional livelihood of people like the Vezos in Madagascar is increasingly under threat. Huge ships now trawl the seas, catching fish such as tuna in bulk, and leaving little for local fishermen in their much smaller boats. On Tuesday's Dateline, David O'Shea reports from the southern Indian Ocean and boards a Greenpeace vessel to find out more about the multi-million dollar international trade. Out in the middle of the ocean, he finds the lines are blurred over legal and illegal catches, with no way of tracking the fish passed between ships registered in several different countries. And there are uncomfortable exchanges as David puts his findings to delegates at the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission. So, what's really going on out of sight on the high seas?JESUS OF SIBERIAIs Jesus alive and well and living in Siberia? Well, yes, according to the thousands of disciples of Sergei Torop, the self-proclaimed son of God now known as Vissarion. On Tuesday's Dateline, Kim Traill visits their remote self-sufficient community, which has become a retreat for people alienated by capitalist Russia. Now they live a life devoted to a leader who forbids drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and even eating meat, and where women are encouraged to work in the home, while the men build their new community. And Kim is granted a rare interview with the man himself...a former traffic policeman, who first revealed himself as the second coming of Christ in 1991. Hear why Vissarion and his followers are convinced the world as we know it is destroying itself, but why their community will be saved.WAR AND PEACEUnder a peace treaty after World War Two, Japan agreed to give up its military power, but many believe its Self Defence Force (SDF) now looks increasingly like a Defence Force. On Tuesday's Dateline, Steve Chao gets unprecedented access to the SDF at work, as he looks at the fierce debate over whether Japan should be able to revive its military might. It may not be able to fire the first shot, but 240,000 members are ready for action and $52 million is set to be spent this year... higher than most other countries' defence spending. There are not just concerns over North Korea's nuclear capability, but land disputes with China and Russia are also raising political tensions. And with its neighbours already so well armed, how can pacifist Japan defend itself before it's too late?
