Slavery: A 21st Century Evil2011-2011
In this eight-part series, Rageh Omaar uncovers the truth about the flourishing 21st century slave trade.
Today, 27 million men, women and children are held, sold and trafficked as slaves throughout the world.
From the sex slaves of Eastern Europe to China's prison labour slaves; from Brazil's hellish charcoal slave camps to entire families enslaved in Pakistan's brick kilns, this series exposes the people behind modern slavery and the companies who profit from it.
Weaving the testimony of current and former slaves with investigations into some of the biggest global slave masters, we ask why this age-old evil continues to flourish.
