Next Episode of Unreported World is
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 Ade Adepitan and director Eric McFarland travel to Tanzania, where 400 women died in witch-hunts last year, twice as many as in the year before. Many others were attacked and ostracised. More people in Tanzania believe in witchcraft than anywhere else in Africa. But some people think that there's more behind recent witchcraft attacks than a fear of the supernatural.
Every year around 300,000 British tourists visit the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of Cancún, the jewel in Mexico's $20 billion tourism industry. But after a spate of brutal murders, the US government has warned travellers about the risks associated with growing violent crime in the city. Reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Patrick Wells travel to the country to investigate why the murders are taking place and whether Cancún risks going the same way as Acapulco: once the premier tourism resort in Mexico, but now one that virtually no foreigners visit.
Reporter Yousra Elbagir and director Jessica Kelly visit the Mowasah hospital in Jordan where Doctors Without Borders surgeons are offering life-changing surgery to help innocent victims of the wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. It's the only hospital of its kind in the Middle East, and as well as battling their injuries, patients - many of them children or still in their teens - have had to make extraordinary journeys to get there. The Unreported World team follows their stories and investigates the challenges facing a generation who have known only war. Some are victims of Isis, but many are victims of Saudi airstrikes in Yemen and coalition airstrikes in Iraq.
Sophie Morgan reports from Australia where leaked footage of the shocking treatment of young prisoners - most of them Aboriginal teenagers - in a juvenile detention centre in the county's Northern Territory has sparked outcry and a government inquiry. Ninety-four per cent of young people held in detention centres in the Northern Territory are Aboriginal, although they make up only a quarter of the state's population. Morgan and director Simon Rawles meet one of the boys at the centre of the scandal, who reveals his harsh treatment behind bars. The team also investigates a hidden issue that makes these young prisoners' situation even more upsetting. Unreported World discovers recent evidence suggesting that as many as two fifths of these young prisoners have an intellectual disability known as foetal alcohol spectrum disorder, linked to their mothers' use of alcohol during pregnancy.
