The Spring 2019 series of Unreported World, the UK's longest-running foreign affairs, kicks off on April 5 with Carnival Wars, as Seyi Rhodes visits Sao Paulo’s carnival to report on Brazil’s new culture wars. You can watch each new Unreported World film in the UK on Channel 4’s All4 platform and internationally on the Unreported World YouTube channel. For web shorts go to the Unreported World Facebook page. Plus we're now collaborating with LADbible on web shorts.
And if you’re catching up, look for two of our recent films for Channel 4 Dispatches: Britain’s Hidden War in which Sue Turton explores the UK role in the Yemen conflict, and HS2: The Great British Train Robbery, which sees Liam Halligan investigate Europe’s biggest infrastructure project.
Iraq Uncovered (PBS Frontline/C4) has won the Robert F Kennedy Journalism Award for International Television to add to its Foreign Affairs Journalism award at the British Press awards. Unreported World has also won the Award for International Content (sponsored by the International Broadcasting Trust) at the Voice of the Listener and Viewer award, and the Unreported World film Africa's Perfect Storm recently won at the Foreign Press Association awards.
