Families On Trial: The silent anguish suffered by the innocent families of prisoners
England and Wales has the highest imprisonment rate in Western Europe, at 153 per 100,000 of the population. The prison population of the UK stands at over 92,000, but on top of this figure are the countless more individuals whose lives are shattered by prison sentences. Families of prisoners are the invisible victims of crime, serving their own sentence of isolation, stigma and financial struggle. Yet maintaining contact with loved ones is vital; prisoners who are supported and visited by their families are 25% less likely to re-offend than those who have no family contact or support. These three profiles give an insight into the heartbreak and hardship suffered by family members of prisoners, but also examine the crucial contribution they make to their rehabilitation.

50 years after the US military intervention in the Vietnam War, the weapons it used continue to harm the local population. Unexploded mines still take lives and the consequences of “Agent Orange” claim new victims. A defoliant used by the US Air Force to destroy forests where Vietcong guerrilla fighters were taking cover, “Agent Orange” is highly toxic to humans. The chemical not only severely harmed the health of those immediately exposed to it, but also led to birth defects in subsequent generations. Its impact is still being felt in Vietnam, where it is estimated that around 5 million people are suffering from its damaging effects. They call it their “orange pain.”

Conspiracy of Silence, a documentary listed for viewing in TV Guide Magazine, was to be aired on the Discovery Channel, on May 3, 1994. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.
Many children suffered the indignity of wearing nothing but their underwear and a number displayed on a piece of cardboard hanging from their necks when being auctioned off to foreigners in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Toronto, Canada.
At the last minute, before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired.

Celebrity Defector – Yeon-Mi Park: The North Korean defector who’s become a TV Star in South Korea.
This remarkable story tracks a young woman’s harrowing escape with her family from North Korea. Now living in South Korea, Yeon-mi Park has found celebrity and infamy through her anti-North Korea TV show.
“There was nobody I could call. There was nobody who came to my father’s funeral”, says 20-year-old Yeon-mi. During her desperate escape from North Korea she was forced to bury her father, a former party member who had been sentenced to 17 years hard labour, alone in the dead of night. Her smiling appearance gives little away about her traumatising life in North Korea. After a two year journey and with her sister also presumed dead on the defectors trail, Yeon-mi finally reached Seoul and stationed herself in South Korea’s public eye. Her staring role in the glossy cable show ‘On My Way To Meet You’ sees her mocking the Kim dynasty’s regime. “Of course North Korea itself is propaganda and they don’t want to let people know about the truth, behind the scene it’s really ugly”, she says.
