Preview – Machines


This disturbing programme looks at the inner workings of a textile factory in India.

In this factory in Sachin, Gujarat, the employees work 12-hour shifts in dark, cramped conditions. Not only that, but some of the people working in the factory are also children. The programme interviews staff and management about how they feel working there, and the people filming the documentary end up being conforted by the employees themselves.

Machines is on BBC Four at 22.00.
