Series of documentaries in which Stacey Dooley investigates current affairs issues affecting young people around the world.
Stacey Dooley, one of BBC Three's most popular journalists, travels to British Columbia and Alberta to explore why this is happening, and investigate what is being done about it.
She starts her journey on a remote road dubbed the Highway of Tears where dozens of woman have vanished or been murdered since 1980 whilst trying to hitchhike. Determined to find out why this is happening and who is taking the girls Stacey travels to the city of Edmonton, to meet women working in the sex trade that are at high-risk, some reveal disturbing stories of violence and fear.
Stacey Dooley returns to the Philippines to make a complex and chilling film about Filipino mothers who sexually abuse children, often their own, live in front of webcams in exchange for money.
Stacey Dooley delves deep undercover into the nascent world of Britain's digital drug dealers. Using fake profiles on Instagram, Snapchat and new social app Yellow, she reveals how school children as young as 15 are selling class A drugs on social platforms. It is only a matter of seconds before Stacey is offered everything from cocaine to meth.
Stacey comes face to face with a British gang who now rely upon young digital dealers to keep their business afloat. Access to one of Britian's largest drug outfits reveals 75 per cent of their revenue now comes through digital dealers who operate remotely from the privacy of their bedroom. The fast-paced connectivity of Snapchat and Instagram means the gang can sell up to Â£22,000 worth of cocaine in a couple of hours.
The only way for Stacey to meet the elusive digital dealers and find out more about their world is to go undercover. After decoding their secret emoji drug code, Stacey arranges MDMA deals and confronts the dealers. Young dealers show how opportunistic individuals operating online are overpopulating an already overcrowded market. But how they reach their client base is revolutionising the game and putting more and more street dealers out of business.
As the digital drug revolution gathers pace, it runs the risk of turning into an epidemic as Snapchat, Instagram and Yellow appear to be doing very little to quash this drug dealing haven.
In the aftermath of this year's elections, Stacey Dooley heads to Northern Ireland to find out exactly who supporters of the DUP are.
She meets people who voted for a party that is both anti-Gay marriage and anti-abortion even when some don't agree, and discovers that the place is still bitterly divided years after The Troubles. Her investigation plunges her into the bitter politics of Northern Ireland where British and Irish identities coexist with unease.
Stacey Dooley travels to Florida - where sex offenders are punished forever. After serving their sentences, paedophiles and other sex offenders face legal restrictions for life.
But there is a battle raging in the American state about these laws. Do they truly protect children, or just make the public feel better? And the crucial question Stacey explores during her trip: do they ever deserve a second chance?
Stacey spends time with convicted sex offenders living in a homeless camp in Miami and an isolated community in the middle of nowhere - both consequences of strict laws preventing them from living less than 2,500ft from a place where children congregate. The offenders she meets hope to be fully reintegrated into society, having committed crimes ranging from watching child pornography to molesting children - but are blocked by the strict laws which restrict their movements for life.
She also meets with Senator Lauren Book, and her father, lawyer and lobbyist Ron Book, who have campaigned for more than 20 pieces of sex offender legislation - including the 2,500ft residency restrictions in Miami - discovering that Lauren herself was abused for six years as a child by the family's live-in nanny.
In Florida, Stacey struggles to come to a conclusion about whether sex offenders deserve a second chance, in the face of the harrowing experiences of victims and heinous crimes committed by offenders, especially when unexpected revelations along the way make her question everything she has learnt from the offenders she has got to know.
Stacey comes face to face with ISIS as she revisits Iraq to unearth the harrowing story of Yazidi women kept as ISIS sex slaves. She is accompanied by Shireen, a Yazidi woman who was kept as a slave in Mosul before managing to escape during the battle to regain the city. Stacey helps Shireen retrace the steps of her torturous past, revisiting parts of the city which played a significant role in Shireen's ordeal. Their journey culminates in a face to face exchange with an ISIS fighter who claims to have killed over 900 people, and raped over 250 women.
Their first stop is the house in Mosul which Shireen was taken to, held hostage and routinely raped by her captor. She shows the room in which she was held, with a curtain she fitted and the initials on the wall of her ISIS captor and his wife. Shireen takes Stacey to one of the former markets that were set up to trade the women. Although nothing but rubble is left the effect on Shireen is profound and she wants answers to why this happened.
The next day, escorted by an Iraqi Commander, they search through the decimated city to locate Shireen's escape house. However, during their hunt she is cut off from answering Stacey's questions about her experience by the Commander.
Finally their trip ends in a small room outside the city where they sit face to face with Amar, a 21 year old ISIS fighter. Anmar took part in the raid on Shireen's home city and had three Yazidi sex slaves of his own. Shireen is finally able to challenge him on why this happened, why he did it, and how he feels about the atrocities he committed now.
