Slave Britain explores the rise of modern slavery in the UK, giving a portrait of the dark world of forced labour through the eyes of the people involved.
The British Government estimates that there are approximately 13,000 people forced into slavery in the UK today and Slave Britain provides a unique insight into this hidden criminal world, from the ‘slaves’ themselves to the investigators and those trying to tackle this criminal industry.
From agriculture to nail bars, Slave Britain explores the dark world of modern day slavery and many of the slaves who are being trapped in plain sight.
