The last hanging in this country took place as recently as 1964.

Reporter Evan Williams and director Paul Kittel travel to the Brazilian city of Recife, a beach paradise visited by thousands of British tourists every year. They uncover allegations that the police are involved in death squads that have murdered thousands of 'undesirables', including hundreds of street children, every year. The Unreported World team is immediately confronted by the murder of an 18-year-old boy on the side of a street. Police officers say it was an execution, a close-range shot to the head, typical of many of the city's nearly 3000 murders a year.

Following the journey migrants take as they try to smuggle themselves into Europe poses a unique set of challenges. First, you need to find the migrants. This isn’t a simple task, as my director Jacob Waite and I soon discovered. Although hundreds of thousands enter the EU from the east via Turkey every year, these are people who have dedicated themselves to being invisible. They are breaking the law and risking their lives to slip unseen across borders.
