Inside Out, We Are Always A Step Ahead.

:00:00.:01:04.

First, driving tired can be just as dangerous as string driving. A

:01:05.:01:13.

recent online survey of more than 1100 junior doctors, 41% admitted

:01:14.:01:17.

falling asleep behind the wheel following a night shift, so is it

:01:18.:01:23.

time we all woke up to the danger? I know of for colleagues who died

:01:24.:01:28.

within my first two years of qualifying. All were driving home

:01:29.:01:35.

after shifts. I have an 11-month-old daughter and I continually worry

:01:36.:01:39.

about having an accident. I was driving in the slow lane on the

:01:40.:01:44.

motorway, then woke up in the fast lane. These are genuine testimonies

:01:45.:01:48.

from junior doctors currently working in our NHS. I almost drove

:01:49.:01:55.

into the back of a lorry when I fell asleep briefly. I also drove up the

:01:56.:02:02.

curb, which woke me up. After seven consecutive nights, I fell asleep

:02:03.:02:05.

driving home and crashed my car into a concrete pillar. In the NHS as it

:02:06.:02:12.

is, there are greater pressures, fewer doctors and it is easy to just

:02:13.:02:15.

keep pushing yourself to the absolute limit until you break. A

:02:16.:02:23.

junior doctor in Oxford, Sammy is getting ready for a 13 hour night

:02:24.:02:27.

shift in intensive care. She often works four of these in a row. After

:02:28.:02:32.

only a few months on the job, she had a near miss driving home. Five

:02:33.:02:37.

minutes away from home, I was on one of the country roads and find myself

:02:38.:02:42.

on the opposite side of the road. Thank goodness, there was nothing

:02:43.:02:47.

coming the other way. In fact, only just last year, I was going to a

:02:48.:02:51.

night shift and I came across a coroner flipped in the road. It was

:02:52.:02:58.

another junior doctor coming back from the late shift. On that

:02:59.:03:05.

occasion, the driver escaped unhurt, but sadly, that's not always the

:03:06.:03:12.

case. When she came off the night shift, she phoned home and said she

:03:13.:03:15.

was leaving. She had a chat with her mum and explained the night shift

:03:16.:03:22.

had gone well. Brian borrows my daughter was driving home after her

:03:23.:03:26.

first ever night shift is a newly qualified doctor. She was a bit

:03:27.:03:32.

concerned about how things might go, because it was a new experience for

:03:33.:03:35.

her being in charge and she was feeling quite pleased with herself.

:03:36.:03:40.

Nevertheless, on the journey back home, she fell asleep. How did you

:03:41.:03:49.

find out something had gone wrong? Because we are expecting her home,

:03:50.:03:59.

we set off to find and while we were driving, we could see the accident

:04:00.:04:06.

on the other side of the road. At the time, junior doctors in Scotland

:04:07.:04:09.

could work up to seven night shift in a row. Brian has been campaigning

:04:10.:04:16.

and has helped cut this to five. I'm her voice now. She's not to speak

:04:17.:04:22.

for herself. I think that she did speak up initially. But wasn't able

:04:23.:04:27.

to carry that through. I'm trying to do it now. 18 months ago, after a

:04:28.:04:37.

run of night shift, a junior doctor from gospel was heading home to his

:04:38.:04:46.

pregnant wife. The doctor was travelling home after three night

:04:47.:04:50.

shift when his car collided... The doctor probably fell asleep... He

:04:51.:04:58.

was just 33 years old. Think it is almost just too easy to think that

:04:59.:05:02.

it won't happen to you, but I think that when you have tragedies are so

:05:03.:05:06.

close to home, like someone who's pretty much exactly like you, it

:05:07.:05:11.

really is scary. It's something that really does make me think. Keen to

:05:12.:05:17.

learn if she is right to be concerned, Sam has agreed to take a

:05:18.:05:23.

driving reactions test after working a 13 hour night shift. We'll find

:05:24.:05:27.

out later how she gone. It's estimated there are more than 3

:05:28.:05:30.

million of us regularly working through the night in all kinds of

:05:31.:05:37.

jobs. This doctor is a sleep consultant and teaches the

:05:38.:05:41.

importance of rest to newly recruited junior doctors. When the

:05:42.:05:44.

work at night, our brains think we should be asleep and that is like

:05:45.:05:47.

fighting against jet lag the whole time. The teaching that we do is all

:05:48.:05:52.

about making sure that we encourage our junior doctors, nursing

:05:53.:05:58.

colleagues, everybody waking at night, that it is not a sign of

:05:59.:06:01.

weakness at all to take resting breaks and we are working. There is

:06:02.:06:08.

very much a hero attitude in medicine and nursing that are only

:06:09.:06:11.

come second to the needs of the patient, but actually if you're

:06:12.:06:16.

overtired, fatigued, you are not able to give the best year patient.

:06:17.:06:19.

Even though there may be ten patients waiting to see you, if you

:06:20.:06:27.

take half an hour to take a break, to combat the fatigue that is, in

:06:28.:06:29.

this paperwork is absolutely important. In Oxford, Sam has just

:06:30.:06:39.

finished her nature. How are you feeling? Really tired. It was really

:06:40.:06:46.

busy, quite stressful. I cover intensive care and we had a full

:06:47.:06:50.

unit of patients. I managed to grab a cup of Coffey at about half three

:06:51.:06:54.

and I've been pretty much on the go the whole time. Before Sam can go

:06:55.:06:59.

home to bed, it's temporary driving reactions test at the transport

:07:00.:07:05.

research lab in Berkshire. If you'd like to come through to the

:07:06.:07:10.

simulator and take a seat. Simon is in charge of driver fatigue research

:07:11.:07:13.

and will be analysing her performance. Fatigue is a huge road

:07:14.:07:20.

safety problem. Our own perception tends to lack behind reality and by

:07:21.:07:27.

the time we have realised that, we could have made a serious mistake

:07:28.:07:30.

that could lead to a collision. We would like to is keep you below 60

:07:31.:07:36.

mph, please. Is one of those things, where if I'm tired, I would push the

:07:37.:07:44.

car. Sam has to drive along a virtual motorway for the next 90

:07:45.:07:48.

minutes. We are monitoring her reactions from the control room.

:07:49.:07:53.

Sewers was a blinking, sometimes you see those long blinks. After just a

:07:54.:07:58.

few minutes, Sam starts blinking rapidly. In a field attempt to

:07:59.:08:05.

increase her alertness. You can tell she is fighting it as well. There is

:08:06.:08:09.

a moment where she is tired and then lots of blinking. You can see the

:08:10.:08:19.

mouth movements as well. After 19 minutes, Sam's eyes start to blink

:08:20.:08:25.

more slowly. She is having micro sleeps. In Michael sleep is just a

:08:26.:08:33.

longer blink, to 15 seconds. It is usually an indicator that someone is

:08:34.:08:37.

disengaged from the task. She is getting quite bad now. At motorway

:08:38.:08:45.

speeds, if your eyes shut for a second, think about what you will

:08:46.:08:50.

miss. Sam is meant to stick to the inside lane for the whole journey,

:08:51.:08:52.

but she is struggling to stay on course. She just moved out there

:08:53.:08:59.

onto to berate and almost overcompensate to be back and be

:09:00.:09:03.

left. So my guess, that is quite typical when someone is fatigued,

:09:04.:09:07.

the impetus came to be quite exaggerated. She has glazed features

:09:08.:09:14.

and new muscle tone has started to slacken. Really long-sight closures.

:09:15.:09:19.

Hi, Sam. You can stop the vehicle. Please, bring it to a halt. The test

:09:20.:09:26.

is over and Simon has the results. One of the key indicators of fatigue

:09:27.:09:30.

is willing to purchase and today, 69 occasions he left the inside lane of

:09:31.:09:37.

mortuary. That meant that it was almost in 2.5 minutes he spent

:09:38.:09:40.

outside lane you're meant to be travelling in. What's really

:09:41.:09:45.

worrying is the number of times your reaction speed was slower than 1.5

:09:46.:09:49.

seconds and therefore dangerous. The work of occasions when you fail to

:09:50.:09:57.

respond quickly enough. On one instance, it was 5.5 seconds later.

:09:58.:10:03.

Was it really? Groomer guess. Howedes your new here that? That is

:10:04.:10:15.

really shocking. There is terrifying. There is really, really

:10:16.:10:24.

scary. Clearly, driving when this tired is dangerous. Across the

:10:25.:10:28.

country, junior doctors are working long high-intensity shifts, some

:10:29.:10:36.

clocking up 90 hours a week. Last year, the Health Secretary and their

:10:37.:10:40.

controversial new junior doctor contact reduce the number of

:10:41.:10:43.

consecutive night shift from seven to four. The working week for junior

:10:44.:10:49.

doctors was also cut. Tired doctors risk patient safety, so in the new

:10:50.:10:53.

contract the maximum number of virus can be worked in one week will be

:10:54.:11:05.

reduced from 91 to 72. I think he should be assumed about. Boasting

:11:06.:11:09.

about that. We are asking junior doctors to work nearly twice as much

:11:10.:11:12.

as the rest of the population and that is a boast? The Department of

:11:13.:11:17.

Health declined to be interviewed, but told us that someone they expect

:11:18.:11:26.

the NHS staff to be properly rested. Are going to be looking for 40 years

:11:27.:11:31.

of service junior doctor, but were not going to get if we are so

:11:32.:11:35.

exhausted and have accidents like like Lauren or otherwise. No one

:11:36.:11:42.

should leave their home and not return from work. Still to come, we

:11:43.:11:54.

see a fond for a welter and Oxford institution. All good things come to

:11:55.:11:58.

an end. Thank you much for your custom. As ever, we will love to

:11:59.:12:02.

hear reports about the show. You can drop me an Eno. -- e-mail. Next, the

:12:03.:12:14.

Land Rover defender, cult status with enthusiasts and car thieves.

:12:15.:12:20.

Glen Campbell investigates. Some of these Land Rover 's are worth more

:12:21.:12:26.

than ?50,000. Lovingly built and tinkered with over a decade, to

:12:27.:12:29.

their owners, these vehicles are more than just a car. The problem

:12:30.:12:35.

is, it organised gangs of car thieves, the Land Rover has become a

:12:36.:12:41.

top target. We have a couple of Facebook pages to give people

:12:42.:12:45.

information about the club, always somebody coming on there saying the

:12:46.:12:52.

Land Rover has been stolen. Housing is once a week. He is still in the

:12:53.:12:56.

land Rovers and why are they doing it? Where are they all going to?

:12:57.:13:02.

Samak had one still in 18 months ago. Just off the drive in the

:13:03.:13:07.

middle of the night, someone broke into it, disappeared in oversight

:13:08.:13:11.

again. The swimmers in my garage under lock and key. Everything out I

:13:12.:13:22.

have is well secured. Last Land Rover rolled up the production line

:13:23.:13:26.

in 2016 and since then the sky has become the second. Vehicle in

:13:27.:13:32.

England. Levi Land Rover, you're buying a hobby. The decoder people

:13:33.:13:38.

love, cherish, sometimes it's a guy that has been passed on to the

:13:39.:13:42.

family. The impact from the civil image had it stolen is like losing

:13:43.:13:46.

your dog. It's not nice. This Land Rover is the pride and joy of

:13:47.:13:49.

Leicestershire police and the thieves took it apart overnight. It

:13:50.:13:56.

was parried his heady local police station. All the stolen land Rovers

:13:57.:13:59.

have got to be going somewhere, is what exactly is happening to them?

:14:00.:14:04.

Because they stopped making them, the spare parts are few and far

:14:05.:14:09.

between. You could have won in its completely in an hour. There is no

:14:10.:14:12.

closer to most of the Pirates, is the appear on eBay and IC market for

:14:13.:14:21.

stolen parts. John Isner Land Rover mechanic from Sussex who was hit by

:14:22.:14:25.

the thieves last year. As someone who knows Land Rover is inside out,

:14:26.:14:33.

I have set him a challenge. The plan is to on-board powers of the Land

:14:34.:14:36.

Rover until we end up with a bigger pile of bits and as little Land

:14:37.:14:47.

Rover as we can finish work. John firmly believes his beloved Land

:14:48.:14:50.

Rover restoring order and cannibalise parts. With the clock

:14:51.:14:55.

ticking and multiple cameras running, we will check back in with

:14:56.:15:02.

him in a while. Henry is a mechanic on slightly larger vehicles. He's a

:15:03.:15:06.

steam train engineer. His Land Rover was special. It was his Reading car.

:15:07.:15:14.

I use it all the time and that was my first vehicle. Henry's Land Rover

:15:15.:15:23.

was stolen from the car park of the Kent and Sussex railway so if you

:15:24.:15:28.

have seen it, one steam engine driver would love to have her back.

:15:29.:15:33.

I was never envisioning getting rid of it, it was going to be with me

:15:34.:15:37.

alive, handed down to my sanity with interested and so on and so. It is

:15:38.:15:41.

soul destroying when you have spent all that time with it and now it is

:15:42.:15:47.

just gone. Car crime is now a high-tech business, this garage is

:15:48.:15:51.

full of top and lower range roaders. The manufacture of the all of these

:15:52.:15:55.

cloud with at least one tracker for the benefit of their owners that the

:15:56.:15:58.

car gangs have a trick up their sleeves. They are now using one of

:15:59.:16:03.

these, a magic wand to snip the track and disable it. I just turn

:16:04.:16:09.

that up. They will know that there is something in the vehicle. A

:16:10.:16:15.

tracker. Now when people steal a car, they will block the signal, any

:16:16.:16:20.

signal coming out of the car, take it to somewhere safe, take it to a

:16:21.:16:23.

side road or leave it in a unit somewhere and when they feel safe,

:16:24.:16:26.

they will switch this unit on and try and find the tracking unit. As

:16:27.:16:30.

soon as they fight it, it will be disconnected. Being one step ahead

:16:31.:16:33.

of the thieves is the only way to catch them and the latest gadget

:16:34.:16:39.

does just that. A tiny, highly intelligent traffic that cannot be

:16:40.:16:43.

sniffed out by the magic wand. What is the product that you have come up

:16:44.:16:47.

with? What is the secret tracker? That is the I would love to tell you

:16:48.:16:52.

it and show you the device, we do not do that. It could be anything on

:16:53.:16:56.

the car. It is not one particular unit, it is well hidden, we do not

:16:57.:17:00.

talk about it. It could be in the headlight, anywhere. We don't want

:17:01.:17:05.

the thieves to get the upper hand on us. Neal's intelligence tracker is

:17:06.:17:11.

getting results. It can run from a signal from inside shipping

:17:12.:17:16.

container. Police are recovering land Rovers at Southampton docks

:17:17.:17:21.

just about to be shipped abroad. Back in John's barn, how its attempt

:17:22.:17:26.

at stripping a Land Rover in under an hour going? Was at a casing gone

:17:27.:17:34.

in 60 minutes? -- was it a case. Now you see it, now you do not. That

:17:35.:17:41.

is time. The Land Rover was stripped in 60 minutes. I use a price that

:17:42.:17:45.

you did it this quick? I am quite surprised, yes. I don't think I

:17:46.:17:51.

would want to do it as a business. Now put it back together. Thank you.

:17:52.:17:57.

That will take longer. Glen Campbell reporting there. Don't

:17:58.:18:01.

forget, we are on Twitter. You can find this out... I am resisting the

:18:02.:18:08.

urge to say that final story is a load of old cobblers. Here is James

:18:09.:18:16.

in Oxford. It's often said there's an awful lot

:18:17.:18:21.

you can tell about a person from their shoes. But then again, I would

:18:22.:18:30.

say that. I am a bespoke shoe maker. I have making shoes by hand for the

:18:31.:18:36.

past 20 years. From designing them to hand stitching them. And in the

:18:37.:18:43.

world of fast everything, I am proud to be a part of something much

:18:44.:18:51.

slower. In Oxford, they have been making shoes in a similar way since

:18:52.:18:59.

1988. But sadly, after nearly a years, it is closing. So when I

:19:00.:19:05.

found out such an iconic Schumacher is as Ducker Son was sorting up

:19:06.:19:08.

shop, I had to go for one last time before they close their doors

:19:09.:19:18.

forever. My name is James Tameka, apparently no relation. Both of our

:19:19.:19:23.

families from North Norfolk. -- Ducker. My namesake was an engineer

:19:24.:19:26.

before turning his hand to shoemaking. Bob Avery also change

:19:27.:19:34.

career. Before teaching himself shoemaking, he was a shoe repair at

:19:35.:19:38.

Woolworth and before that, a bus conductor. The legislator back to

:19:39.:19:46.

1910 and reveal history of the city and its shoes. So each one of those

:19:47.:19:51.

is in order for a pair of shoes? This is everything they have made an

:19:52.:19:54.

error count and the prices accordingly about time. In today's

:19:55.:20:01.

money, 140 stop ?1 each shillings and sixpence in old money. I have no

:20:02.:20:07.

idea what that means. Any particular style you are looking for colours? I

:20:08.:20:14.

love everything. This is an old-fashioned shop and a lot of the

:20:15.:20:18.

work ethics are still old-fashioned. You don't come in here at nine

:20:19.:20:21.

o'clock and start walking out the door at five. My wife is common into

:20:22.:20:28.

the shop and 9:30pm to as me if I have any intention of coming home.

:20:29.:20:32.

Do think there's a little bit of you in every pair that goes out of the

:20:33.:20:36.

door? You put your mark on every single pair. These wooden mast of

:20:37.:20:41.

the starting point for the shoes ever made her, the footprints if you

:20:42.:20:47.

like over a century of loyal customers. My name is George. I have

:20:48.:20:55.

about nine or ten pairs of the shoes. I'm 97, you are now going to

:20:56.:21:03.

admire my agility. Nobody in my family has ever lived this long.

:21:04.:21:15.

These are my duties. -- beauties. Aren't they beautiful temperate

:21:16.:21:20.

shoes? These are very old, these are back into the 50s. Tremendous age. I

:21:21.:21:31.

came up to Christchurch in 1946, I wasn't at all rich but I got in a

:21:32.:21:38.

way of buying my shoes at Ducker and there is a little man working for

:21:39.:21:46.

Ducker and I had a pair of shoes one day and he said where'd you get your

:21:47.:21:55.

shoes from? She said if you can go to customers, you can afford to buy

:21:56.:22:02.

the shoes. I like the directness. Those are Ducker shoes, they must be

:22:03.:22:06.

50 years old. They're beautiful, aren't they? There's another but

:22:07.:22:10.

people in this world who have not been to Ducker, they should be

:22:11.:22:20.

imprisoned. There probably ten years old but they look as good as new as

:22:21.:22:24.

far as I am concerned. They look lovely. Are you a loyal customer? I

:22:25.:22:32.

am indeed. I first came here as an undergraduate, in 1976, I have been

:22:33.:22:35.

coming here ever since. How many pairs of Duckers do think you have?

:22:36.:22:43.

About 30 pairs, I think. This sum, it is the last chance to own a bit

:22:44.:22:50.

of Oxford's history. I just bought a pair of Duckers and I think you can

:22:51.:22:55.

tell a lot about a place you choose. In this case, Oxford is on offer in

:22:56.:22:58.

plane and there are generations of students and Fellows of colleges who

:22:59.:23:04.

have been used to walking in and out of colleges and college gardens and

:23:05.:23:07.

trampling on the Thames which is just over there and you have got

:23:08.:23:12.

this great proximity of city and countryside, it is one of the

:23:13.:23:14.

distinctive features of Oxford so the shoes but Doctor -- that Ducker

:23:15.:23:22.

is famous for, the Beeb that runs around the shoe, what they call a

:23:23.:23:29.

rustic grain which is the embossed look which is much more resistant to

:23:30.:23:34.

scratching. It is at home at town and in the

:23:35.:23:40.

countryside. Even though people walking, it is a lot more relaxed

:23:41.:23:44.

today. You never know who is going to walking. Baron did not pay his

:23:45.:23:58.

bill. He collected his shoes. Descendants of his came in 1989, the

:23:59.:24:04.

honoured the account. Is that what batters? That entry in bread there.

:24:05.:24:11.

There is another entry by which humane know who that is. The author,

:24:12.:24:20.

he was at Jesus College. Perhaps the most famous customer is Lord of the

:24:21.:24:25.

rings author JR Tolkien who studied English at Oxford. He played

:24:26.:24:31.

football. I have enjoyed every minute of it, I
