This programme, filmed in Brazil, Bangladesh and Tanzania, looks at the problem of global poverty, and why it is so difficult to deal with. There are moving interviews with individuals caught in the trap of poverty, like the canal digger supporting a family of ten on 21p a day, and a Tanzanian tea-packer. “There is a permanent automatic exploitation of the poor by the rich.” Julius Nyerere.
A series of programmes which look at world poverty in connection with the Brandt Report, and the World Summit on Poverty, held in Mexico.
