Preview – North Korea: Life Inside the Secret State

North Korea

Annoyingly this special edition of Dispatches spends no time in the actual North Korea.

What it does feature is footage of people who have defected from North Korea to South Korea, who are still in regular phone contact with former friends and family across the border. It is still a very dangerous business for the Northerners, given the monitoring of people in the authoritarian state.

North Korea: Life Inside the Secret State is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
