Panorama: Breaking Into Britain
In this groundbreaking film, Evan Davis uncovers the truth behind the economic migrants who cross continents to try to illegally enter Britain. Two reporters set out to immerse themselves in the journeys that these migrants take along the most popular and dangerous routes to the UK. Shoaib Sharifi begins in his homeland of Afghanistan, following people as they enter Greece illegally; while Ugandan-born Kassim Kayira looks at the trade in fake documents that many Nigerians are using to fly into the UK, before heading to Niger to meet Africans prepared to risk death in the Sahara for their dream of getting to Britain. And Evan Davis explores what Britain and the rest of Europe is doing to stop these economic migrants getting in.
