For years they stood gathering dust at the history collection across

:02:02.:02:06.

Britain. Now, rhino horn like this at a secret location is more

:02:06.:02:11.

valuable on the black market than gold. One kilo can sell for as much

:02:11.:02:15.

as �60,000. Today, rhino horns are at the

:02:15.:02:19.

centre of international crime rings. This causes a major security issues

:02:19.:02:24.

for museums and zoos across Europe and can threaten the future of the

:02:24.:02:32.

species. This is our number one quiet life crime in the UK, it is a

:02:32.:02:37.

majorly significant issue and we know that organised crime and other

:02:37.:02:42.

people are involved. In the past we had rhino horns out on open display

:02:42.:02:45.

so people could touch them, that would be unthinkable now.

:02:45.:02:49.

In the past six months there have been 20 cases of rhino horn theft

:02:50.:02:54.

across the UK. Collections at Norwich, Ipswich and Leicester have

:02:54.:02:57.

been targeted at police have stepped up their warnings that any

:02:57.:03:02.

Rainow specimens alive or dead are under threat. I think that it would

:03:02.:03:07.

be extremely difficult to take a corner from easy rhino but we take

:03:07.:03:10.

effect very seriously. If the threats have been fuelled by

:03:10.:03:15.

the belief in south-east Asia at rhino horn is a miracle cure, that

:03:15.:03:19.

anything from cancer to hangovers can be cured and as the price goes

:03:19.:03:21.

up the attempts to obtain it illegally become even more

:03:21.:03:25.

desperate. The fight to protect rhinos has moved out of Africa and

:03:25.:03:28.

into the Museums and stately homes and print.

:03:28.:03:32.

For security reasons I cannot tell you exactly where I am in South

Yorkshire, I am in a safe storage area to meet in natural history

curator. We have always taken it very

:03:40.:03:44.

seriously, obviously we are in charge of caring for all of the

:03:44.:03:48.

objects that are in the museum, that is the idea, but the idea that

:03:48.:03:52.

someone wants to steal is never far from our minds. But when we have a

:03:52.:03:56.

very specific threat, like what we have at the moment, then we will

:03:56.:04:00.

take several precautions. To protect their stocks, some

:04:00.:04:05.

museums have resorted to putting fake corns on display. It is hollow,

:04:05.:04:10.

it is made of resin. A friendly model-maker made this for us. The

:04:10.:04:15.

idea being that if the criminals that were coming to me seems to

:04:15.:04:18.

steal rhino horn don't know whether the rhino horn up on display is

:04:18.:04:24.

real or not then hopefully they will stop doing it. A and Britain's

:04:24.:04:32.

colonial past, hunting big game with a socially acceptable pastime.

:04:32.:04:36.

This is hardly the sport for the average man, but for those who get

:04:36.:04:40.

the chance it is the sport of kings. However wrong it seems there, the

:04:40.:04:50.
:04:50.:04:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

dead don't need many specimens to They are just like black rhinos,

:05:36.:05:46.
:05:46.:05:46.

she is nice and peaceful at the moment. There is something

:05:46.:05:48.

prehistoric about them, they are gorgeous.

:05:48.:05:52.

But the fears over their future about them is the same. Security

:05:52.:05:56.

was recently increased to 24 hours per day to counter any set but the

:05:56.:06:01.

staff are aware of what is at stake. We're seeing a demand for rhino

:06:01.:06:05.

horn that is just unprecedented right now. We know, for example, in

:06:05.:06:10.

south-east Asia, particularly China and Vietnam, rhino horn has always

:06:10.:06:16.

been very sought after. It has always been so valuable that people

:06:16.:06:20.

could not afford it, it was good of reach. As the economies of China

:06:20.:06:25.

and Vietnam increase, this has suddenly become in breach of these

:06:25.:06:30.

people there are now demanding rhino horn. The potential demand of

:06:30.:06:33.

that is enormous and unless he can deal with that we will lose these

:06:33.:06:37.

animals. The irony is that according to

:06:37.:06:40.

Western scientific research, rhino horn has no medical benefits

:06:40.:06:48.

whatsoever. Rhino horn is not born like the for -- like the horn of a

:06:49.:06:52.

cow, it sets on the top of the skull and is made of Cheriton, like

:06:52.:06:57.

her fingernails. Poaching of these animals has

:06:57.:07:03.

increased by 3,000 % in recent years. Rhino Ark so endangered that

:07:03.:07:07.

some in Europe have become even more of a target. For many people,

:07:07.:07:11.

this makes little difference. I have in front of me is a typical

:07:11.:07:16.

package that we could see, it is produced illegally for traditional

:07:16.:07:21.

Chinese medicines. These have minute announced of rhino horn like

:07:21.:07:31.
:07:31.:07:32.

this. He could have any other time summoning two species as well. This

:07:32.:07:35.

is twice in value as the same weight of gold. The issue is

:07:35.:07:41.

commodity. People can trade this and cut it up and send it to the

:07:41.:07:47.

Far East where it is used illegally, there are massive gains to be made.

:07:47.:07:51.

The number of people who want to deal rhino horn means that any

:07:51.:07:56.

museum that hold this type of product is at it. There is one

:07:56.:07:59.

initiative on the horizon that it is hoped that will help turn the

:07:59.:08:02.

tide. Crime fighters and conservation

:08:02.:08:06.

experts are now fighting back. They are using the very latest in modern

:08:06.:08:11.

DNA fingerprinting techniques to try and tackle what -- tackle the

:08:11.:08:19.

fees and poachers dead on. Today, Alastair is heading north to bring

:08:19.:08:23.

his museum's rhino horn to a new project in Scotland that will make

:08:23.:08:29.

collections like is more secure. The forensic scientist here is in

:08:29.:08:33.

the process of setting up an international DNA database of every

:08:33.:08:38.

rhino artefact in Europe. This can be used by law-enforcement agencies

:08:38.:08:43.

throughout the world. Do you know how old this rhino horn

:08:43.:08:50.

is? This one dates from 1875. will take a sample from the very

:08:50.:08:54.

base of the core, because that is the most recent growth of the horn.

:08:54.:08:58.

That is the youngest DNA, so I will drill a hole in here and I will

:08:58.:09:04.

take a sample for analysis, and the analysis should hopefully generate

:09:04.:09:10.

a profile unique to the scorn, so in the same way that enforcement

:09:10.:09:14.

agencies might key DNA on file that could look a suspect to a crime, we

:09:14.:09:19.

will use rhino DNA. So if a rhino sample is stolen from a museum, and

:09:19.:09:26.

then recovered in trade, we can compare the DNA profile from this

:09:26.:09:28.

item are covered with the DNA profile generated as a result of

:09:29.:09:31.

this project. The database will also have the

:09:31.:09:35.

benefit for scientists, too, enabling researchers to learn more

:09:35.:09:39.

about the genetic make-up of rhino populations long since gone to

:09:39.:09:44.

protect the species in the future. Aside from the extra information we

:09:44.:09:50.

are getting about the rhino specimen, which is in itself

:09:50.:09:55.

fantastic, we have a little bit extra security. Is this young rhino

:09:55.:09:59.

-- as this young rhino makes its way in the world, the team curators

:09:59.:10:03.

and managers hope that a renewed focus on rhino conservation and

:10:03.:10:09.

crime prevention will mean that these animals as well as the crisis

:10:09.:10:12.

stricken predecessors are not lost forever.

:10:12.:10:18.

With the rhino population down to less than 5,000, with just 630

:10:18.:10:20.

eastern blacks like this left in the world, they are running out of

:10:20.:10:25.

time. We need more people to care about the issue. It is difficult to

:10:25.:10:30.

be optimistic about the future of rhinos, with the small numbers that

:10:30.:10:32.

a letter and the incredible demand placed on them and the to be

:10:32.:10:36.

sources to deal with it, I believe that these magnificent animals will

:10:36.:10:46.
:10:46.:10:49.

Still to come, we need the women who says she is a refugee from the

:10:49.:10:59.
:10:59.:11:04.

modern world. When Billy was convicted of drug

:11:04.:11:08.

smuggling in the Philippines, he faced dying in prison. He was

:11:08.:11:12.

granted a pardon due to his disability. Since his release last

:11:12.:11:15.

year, Billy has sent -- spent his time warning others about the

:11:15.:11:19.

dangers of drugs and the drugs trade.

:11:19.:11:22.

20 years ago whilst on holiday Billy Burton made a terrible

:11:22.:11:24.

decision, which would change his life forever. Now Billy is

:11:24.:11:27.

determined to use his experience to ensure that no one else makes the

:11:27.:11:32.

same mistake again. Hello Billy, nice to see you!

:11:32.:11:38.

Yeah, you two, how're you doing? I had a lump some in the bank and I

:11:38.:11:41.

thought, I'll just travel. I came to an agreement that I would be

:11:41.:11:46.

paid to take the bag of, of hash, to Australia. Truthfully, I was

:11:46.:11:50.

smoking dope, you know, when I was there. And then you get yourself

:11:50.:11:52.

into a couple of financial difficulties and, these are waiting

:11:52.:11:57.

for you! When were you first aware that

:11:57.:12:00.

something was going very wrong? When they put the bags through the

:12:00.:12:08.

X-ray machine. Normally you would just check your bag in and just

:12:08.:12:11.

your hand luggage is searched. This time the bags went through an x-ray

:12:11.:12:13.

machine. What happened once you had been

:12:13.:12:15.

arrested and caught? You are taken away into, by the,

:12:15.:12:18.

you know customs or in the Philippines it was a narcotics

:12:18.:12:22.

commander. I was there for a month and then my decision came, I was

:12:22.:12:25.

sent there to the maximum. It was built for 3,500 and there was 5,000

:12:25.:12:34.

there. That was when I first went there. When I left there was 12,700.

:12:34.:12:36.

Guy Tweedy, himself a victim of thalidomide started a campaign in

:12:36.:12:39.

2010 to have Billy released from prison, despite the pair never

:12:39.:12:44.

having met. Can you talk me through this

:12:44.:12:46.

impressive amount of files you have here?

:12:46.:12:51.

Yeah, there is a lot. It all started with the first part, but

:12:51.:12:54.

the campaign was to get this article into the Sunday Times. That

:12:54.:12:58.

small piece there was the start. First news coverage.

:12:58.:13:05.

Start of the news coverage of the Billy Burton campaign.

:13:05.:13:09.

I spoke to the director of the trust, Dr Martin Johnson and he had

:13:09.:13:13.

told me that he had been in prison a long time. He was able to explain

:13:13.:13:23.
:13:23.:13:26.

Billy's circumstances in the prison. In the jails, you would have a 20ft

:13:26.:13:29.

by 20ft room and there is 50 people inside. And there is one toilet

:13:29.:13:33.

bowl, no sink. There is a pipe that sticks outside the wall which you

:13:33.:13:37.

will maybe get a gallon of water a day each and if you want a shower

:13:37.:13:42.

it is gone, if you want to drink it, it is gone!

:13:42.:13:45.

It was bad for a normal person but for a disabled person it would have

:13:46.:13:48.

been compounded ten times worse, it's ridiculous! And so I decided

:13:48.:13:53.

to get stuck in. All of these Newspapers! All of these! This is

:13:53.:13:59.

an amazing amount of coverage! $$GREEEN A lot of people crticised

:13:59.:14:03.

me for getting involved in Billy's case because he had broken the law

:14:03.:14:06.

and been sent to prison. Now, I'm a believer in law and order, Billy

:14:06.:14:14.

pleaded guilty, he was given a sentence. When you campaign you

:14:14.:14:18.

must make sure that the crisis will get picked up and I made sure that

:14:18.:14:21.

Billy's name was mentioned all the time in the papers and it was just

:14:21.:14:25.

a lot of things coming together. The big breakthrough for me was

:14:25.:14:30.

having a meeting in December 15th with Jeremy Brown, who was the

:14:30.:14:34.

Foreign Office minister, and he was prepared to back his campaign to

:14:34.:14:39.

get Billy out. That was very rare. That was the first time that the

:14:39.:14:46.

Foreign Office were about to campaign on disability. It is

:14:46.:14:50.

astonishing that you have this much in 18 months. Did you ever wake up

:14:50.:14:55.

one morning and think, I can be bothered? I said I would get you

:14:55.:14:59.

out of prison and that is what I did. And the promised my mother.

:14:59.:15:09.

And it promised a mother. Billy has come to a local church groups to

:15:09.:15:15.

warn children about the dangers of drugs. A lot of people criticise me

:15:15.:15:19.

for getting involved in Billy's case, he had broken the law and

:15:19.:15:24.

went to prison. Billy broke the law and served his sentence. He served

:15:24.:15:28.

100% of the sentence handed down to him by the court of Law that day.

:15:28.:15:31.

He served 20 years. But of course Billy being in my constituency, I

:15:31.:15:34.

had a great deal of concern about the deterioration of his health and

:15:34.:15:38.

that wasn't going to get any better in the prison and was very much

:15:38.:15:41.

shortening his life span. It is not a case of if you are

:15:41.:15:45.

going to be exposed to drugs, it is a case of when! And, you know your

:15:45.:15:49.

peers and your friends are going to say don't be a wuss and it is the

:15:49.:15:59.
:15:59.:16:01.

cool thing to do, you know and really it's not! This is my life,

:16:01.:16:06.

these people abuse you can beat you CYAN He helped a lot of people, his

:16:06.:16:09.

story not to do it and make people realize what life is worth living

:16:09.:16:11.

about. It has really, really opened my

:16:11.:16:15.

eyes up about drugs and made me steer away from all like stuff like

:16:15.:16:25.
:16:25.:16:27.

that, he did that to help him for a bit of money and look how it ended!

:16:27.:16:31.

My friends always asks, how did a lap from whether they get involved

:16:31.:16:35.

in a drugs syndicate in Asia? He did not have to be a criminal or a

:16:35.:16:38.

tough guy, you just need to be a bit stupid.

:16:38.:16:42.

After nearly 20 years in a foreign jail, adapting to life back in

:16:42.:16:44.

Britain has not always been plain sailing. Billy's partner, who he

:16:44.:16:48.

met in the Phillipines is in the UK to help him readjust to a life of

:16:48.:16:51.

freedom. Tell me about how you two first came to meet.

:16:51.:16:55.

I was looking for someone to help me with paralegal work and I put

:16:55.:16:58.

the feelers out looking for someone who needed some paralegal work and

:16:58.:17:01.

Maffy at that time was looking for some supplementary work and we were

:17:01.:17:04.

put together and that was 9 years ago!

:17:04.:17:07.

That's brilliant! Were you concerned about him when he was in

:17:07.:17:10.

prison, his health and all that? It has been my greatest dream for

:17:10.:17:20.

him to be able to taste freedom! It is fair to say that you two have

:17:20.:17:26.

been through more than most couples. Oh, yeah! And it is just how long

:17:26.:17:29.

have you been here, four weeks? Yeah, almost four weeks!

:17:29.:17:38.

In nine years, I'm sorry! In nine years, we've had four weeks

:17:38.:17:48.
:17:48.:18:01.

together, living like other people It will be a few years before we

:18:01.:18:04.

can be together, but hopefully, but hopefully over here or in the

:18:04.:18:08.

Phillipines. Do you think about your future?

:18:08.:18:13.

The lack of a future! No, at the moment I have a lot of, I have some

:18:13.:18:16.

health problems which are getting better, but I can't work at the

:18:16.:18:19.

moment. And you never know, maybe you will get some people that come

:18:19.:18:23.

to say, "We know someone who has a problem with drugs, can you come

:18:23.:18:27.

and talk to them?" I want them to see that if they do it, this is

:18:27.:18:30.

what they are going to end up, you know, they are going to be 50,

:18:31.:18:34.

living on somebody else's couch, no wife, no children or house and, you

:18:34.:18:37.

know, you can be a pleasant and nicest bloke that you are, but

:18:37.:18:47.
:18:47.:19:00.

Now, many of us rely on our computers and mobile phones, so

:19:00.:19:04.

imagine trying to live without them. That is what some people are being

:19:04.:19:08.

forced to do for health reasons, and as our correspondent has been

:19:08.:19:11.

finding out, they will go to extraordinary lengths to avoid the

:19:11.:19:17.

modern world. This is Green Bank, West Virginia. It is not difficult

:19:17.:19:21.

to see why people would be attracted here. Just a few hours

:19:21.:19:24.

drive from Washington DC, it offers the sort of peace and solitude many

:19:24.:19:31.

city dwellers crave. But it is something else that has

:19:31.:19:34.

attracted the latest settlers to arrive here, a group who you could

:19:34.:19:44.
:19:44.:19:46.

describe as wi-fi refugees seeking There are a growing community of

:19:46.:19:49.

people who say they are allergic to mobile phones and wi-fi signals,

:19:49.:19:51.

sufferers of what is known as electro-magnetic sensitivity, ES

:19:51.:20:01.
:20:01.:20:07.

In England I was so sick I could not exist, I was ill from morning

:20:07.:20:10.

tonight. Most have moved from other parts of

:20:10.:20:13.

the USA but Silvia Wilson's journey has been much longer, she has come

:20:13.:20:22.

with her daughter more than 3,500 miles from Lincolnshire. In the Dee,

:20:22.:20:29.

-- immediately, it is like this energy review, you feel very sick,

:20:29.:20:37.

and I'm throw up a lot. You get headaches, you feel like you have a

:20:37.:20:41.

lot of pressure in your head and burning sensations which are the

:20:41.:20:45.

most uncomfortable. Hot needles coming in through your head, that

:20:45.:20:50.

is very unpleasant. Very painful. This is reason why Green Bank has

:20:50.:20:53.

become a sanctuary, it's part of the US national radio quiet zone,

:20:53.:20:55.

around 13000 miles where all radio transmissions are banned or

:20:55.:20:58.

severely limited$$NEWLINE This makes Green Bank one of the very

:20:58.:21:01.

few places in the world where you can escape mobile phones and other

:21:01.:21:11.
:21:11.:21:14.

electro-magnetic signals. This makes Greenbank one of the very few

:21:14.:21:17.

places where you can escape mobile phones and other electromagnetic

:21:17.:21:21.

signals. For Silvia it has become a refuge.$$NEWLINE This was Silvia

:21:21.:21:26.

when I first met her seven years ago. She had lined her house in

:21:26.:21:29.

Horncastle with tin foil, she believed it would protect her and

:21:29.:21:37.

her family from a mobile phone mast nearby. The power is very strong,

:21:37.:21:41.

so we have had to shield this otherwise we will become physically

:21:41.:21:46.

ill. This is in your daughter's bedroom as well, all over the

:21:46.:21:50.

ceiling here. I had to look after my mum, she could not get out of

:21:50.:21:58.

bed, she was so ill. I had to make her breakfast and get all of her

:21:58.:22:01.

clothes ready. There came a point when Silvia felt

:22:01.:22:05.

too ill to stay in the UK, the family home was sold and she looked

:22:05.:22:08.

to start a new life with her youngest daughter forced to leave

:22:08.:22:18.
:22:18.:22:18.

her older children and husband behind. My marriage broke down, a

:22:18.:22:23.

lot of stress within the family, with my children, and I was just

:22:23.:22:30.

unable to cope. It had a big emotional impact. It was too much.

:22:30.:22:33.

There's no clear diagnostic criteria for ES so it is impossible

:22:33.:22:36.

to say how many people believe they are affected. Estimates vary from

:22:36.:22:46.
:22:46.:22:47.

as low as just a few in every million to 5% of the population.

:22:47.:22:51.

Scientists know that mobile phone and Y five signals interfere with

:22:51.:22:55.

the operation of the radio telescope here, but to they also

:22:56.:23:00.

adversely affect human health? That is a complicated and controversial

has anything to offer as an explanation for Silvia's illness I

and wi-fi technology is spreading into every corner of our homes. Any

:23:29.:23:33.

possible health effects have to be taken seriously. So what research

:23:33.:23:36.

has there been? There have been more than 50 studies were

scientists have tried to replicate the symptoms suffered by Sylvia and

others. Some of the recent work has taken place here, at King's College

in London. It is similar to a mobile phone but

:23:50.:23:55.

it produces something much stronger than the average mobile phone. It

is the upper threshold of what is allowed for a mobile phone. It is

about electoral sensitivity as a condition? Does the scientific

community gives us any credence? The symptoms are very real in some

cases, and for a minority of people they can be disabling, so it exists

same conclusion as James Rubin. The World Health Organisation states

that there is currently no scientific basis to link ES with

:25:15.:25:18.

health professionals like Dr Erica Mallery Blythe want more research.

:25:18.:25:21.

For all of us in this field the understanding that we have is still

:25:21.:25:27.

extremely poor. Biological systems are not like chemicals in a test-

people's knowledge of this is very poor because we don't have even

Rich in tradition, it offers a very different way of life to Sylvia, a

:27:40.:27:45.

life apart from the modern world. And whatever the experts say, that

:27:45.:27:49.

is what Sylvia believes she needs. We realise that material things

:27:49.:27:55.

mean nothing when you don't have health, health is so important and

:27:55.:28:01.

this is why we came here. How are you feeling now? I feel very good,

:28:01.:28:06.

I can think, I don't feel sick, I feel OK.

:28:06.:28:09.

No one really knows how many people there are like Sylvia, at the

:28:09.:28:14.

moment it seems like medicine has very little to offer her and so

:28:14.:28:18.

each must find their own way of dealing with the symptoms of this

Keeley Donovan finds out why the poaching of rhino in the wild is posing a threat much closer to home with museums and zoos being forced to step up their security. We meet Billy Burton the thalidomide survivor from North Yorkshire who was jailed in the Philippines for drug smuggling but is now devoting his time to warning others about the dangers of drugs. And Paul Murphy reports on the so-called wi-fi refugees, people who are seeking to avoid the modern world because they believe they are allergic to electromagnetic signals.
