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 Marcel Theroux is granted rare access to North Korea as the country contemplates reunification. As he explores the country with director Karim Shah and his official minder Mr Ri, the highlight of his trip is the first Mass Games to be held in five years, with 100,000 citizens singing their hearts out for the fatherland in celebration of the country's 70th anniversary. They also tour Pyongyang's stunning metro system, and visit a trade fair and a collective farm, and Theroux gets an officially sanctioned haircut, in a country where the wrong style can get you into trouble with the police. Travelling outside the city, his guides show off the country's first ski resort, and the team witness a changing country with an emerging soft capitalism.
Reporter Seyi Rhodes and director Eric McFarland visit Johannesburg to meet miners who are risking their lives to descend deep underground in South Africa's abandoned gold mines, hoping to scratch a dangerous living from whatever ore remains. With the mines controlled by violent gangs and surrounded by lawless settlements, Unreported World's miniature cameras capture the stark reality of life at the end of a gold rush.
Reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Jamie Welham travel to El Salvador to reveal what life is like for deportees from the US who are sent back to the gang-ravaged country under President Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. President Trump says his government's latest crackdown is aimed at removing criminals and illegal immigrants, in particular members of the notorious Salvadoran-American street gang MS-13. However, official figures show that an increasing number of those who are being deported have no criminal record. There is a growing trend of Salvadorans with deep roots in the US - many of whom arrived in the States as children more than 20 years ago, and some of whom can't speak Spanish - being deported back to a country with which they have little relationship.
Reporter Sahar Zand and director Mauricio Gris travel to Mauritania in West Africa to discover how young girls and women are being force fed up to 10,000 calories a day because, when it comes to marriage, big is deemed beautiful. And, as Unreported World reveals, a food shortage has led many to choose an even riskier way to pile on the pounds, as they take chemicals - sometimes including some that are meant for animal consumption - with tragic consequences.
