Unreported World is a foreign affairs programme produced by Quicksilver Media Productions and broadcast by Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. Over the course of its twenty-six series, reporters have travelled to dangerous locations all over the world in an attempt to uncover stories usually ignored by the world media.
Reporter Tania Rashid and director Simon Rawles are in South Africa to investigate why there is such a demand for skin bleaching products in the Rainbow Nation. The government has passed strict laws to protect people from creams containing potentially dangerous chemicals which can lead to serious health complications, but as Unreported World reveals, many are still on sale widely and endorsed by celebrities. A recent study found an incredible one in three women in South Africa use skin-bleaching creams, and there are more than 500 different products for sale. In downtown Johannesburg the products are everywhere - despite the ban on any product selling itself as skin-lightening or whitening.
School is supposed to be a sanctuary for children to grow and learn in safety, but millions of girls across Africa are being manipulated, threatened and sexually abused by those who are supposed to be looking after them: their teachers. Reporter Kiki King and director Karim Shah visit Mozambique to investigate the disturbing phenomenon known as 'sex for grades', where teachers force schoolgirls to have sex with them in return for good grades, or their deserved grades. The Mozambican Ministry of Education found that 70% of schoolgirls are either facing this kind of harassment or witnessing it.
Channel 4's multi-award-winning Unreported World returns for its 33rd series with an eye-opening episode from Peru, exposing the callous and illegal wildlife trade in the Amazon jungle. Animal trafficking is a global trade that's seen an unprecedented spike in recent years, threatening dozens of species with extinction. Reporter Ade Adepitan and director Will West travel to the remote city of Iquitos, where they use undercover filming to reveal the shocking scale and the brazen nature of backstreet dealers and market traders selling protected wildlife for bush meat and the international trade.
Unreported World meets some of Russia's most prolific parents and investigates a wave of intolerance sweeping the country. The resurgent Russian Orthodox Church is at the forefront of a new movement combining religion and nationalism. In Rostov on Don, Marcel Theroux and Jessica Kelly meet an Orthodox family with 18 children who have received medals from the government and cash from some of the country's richest people, who are keen to associate with the values that President Putin is promoting: family, God and country. And in Moscow the team investigates the darker side of this resurgent religion and nationalism: a wave of intolerance. Theroux meets Konstantin Malofeev, a millionaire banker with Kremlin connections and the founder of new television station Tsargrad TV, which broadcasts nationalist material and features anti-abortion and homophobic speakers.
The USA is in the grip of an illiteracy crisis, with nearly one in five adults now unable to read. Reporter Kiki King and director Jessica Kelly visit Detroit, a city where two thirds of high school students struggle with basic reading and where things have got so bad that a group of high school students are suing the state of Michigan for failing to teach them adequately.
