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.
Unreported World travels to Lebanon where an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees have fled the war. Reporter Shaunagh Connaire and director Andrew Carter reveal that, despite offers of assistance from the international community, some of those most in need - refugee children with serious medical conditions - are suffering and dying while they wait for help. The UK, other European countries and the US have promised to help the most vulnerable children and resettle them. However, Unreported World discovers that there are limits - on medical grounds - as to who is being accepted on some of these schemes, resulting in some of the sickest children and their families being left stranded.
It's a year since decades of military dictatorship came to an end in Myanmar and Aung San Suu Kyi began leading a new era of civilian government. But the woman hailed around the world is now being criticised for failing to bring real freedoms to many in the country, and the fighting against various rebel groups has intensified. Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Karim Shah travel to the country to investigate whether its fledgling democracy is already under attack.
Correspondent Seyi Rhodes and director Kate Hardie-Buckley report from the set of the hit South Korean TV show that's made defectors from North Korea into TV stars. Now on My Way to Meet You mixes showbiz entertainment and shocking personal testimony, with South Korean celebrities quizzing the defectors on what life's like across the border. More than 400 defectors have been interviewed on the show. Their stories chart the very latest about life in North Korea under Kim Jong-un and for many South Koreans it's become a major source of information about their northern neighbour. Rhodes meets 26-year-old Eunhee Park, who's become one of the show's stars, and recently arrived 25-year-old Suuyeoung Lee, who's about to make her first appearance on the show. Their stories help lift the lid on what life's currently like in North Korea.
Unreported World reporter Sophie Morgan and director Patrick Wells visit the Samoan islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean to investigate an epidemic of obesity. American Samoa has the highest rates of obesity in the world: up to 93% of people are overweight or obese and one in three have diabetes. Samoa is not far behind. The governments of Samoa and American Samoa are trying to tackle the crisis but both remote Islands are still being flooded with unhealthy processed food from abroad, as well as fatty offcuts of meat that are seen as unfit for human consumption in many other countries.
Reporter Seyi Rhodes and director Jessica Kelly are in Senegal to explore the national obsession with competitive wrestling. It's one of Senegal's fastest growing sports and offers young men the opportunity to earn big money in a country battling poverty and unemployment. Unreported World meets some of the superstar wrestlers treated like gods and worshipped by entire neighbourhoods, as well as up-and-coming fighters pushing their bodies to the limits in the hope of making enough money to support their families.
