Child Slavery

The Child Slavery documentary on BBC last night was an icredible achievement, very well made, emotional and thought povoking. Very sad, but hopeful. The presenter, Rageh Omaar, allowed the children to speak for themselves most of the time and tell their, quite often, horrific stories. You could tell from their voices that these were broken people, broken by the conditions under which they had to live. One was frequently moved to tears, listening to them.

This is slavery which we have in our world today and yet it goes almost unseen, unheard and unreported, until a programme like this one.

More later...
