Series 42 Episode 3

Ghana is suffering an environmental disaster caused by the clothes and fast fashion industry. Reporter Ashionye Ogene travels to the bustling market of Kantamanto, in the capital city Accra, to meet the traders struggling to sell the clothes we in the UK no longer want. Kantamanto was once home to textile traders making a good living from so-called ‘Dead White Man’s Clothes’ – items donated from the West believed to be so good that only dead people would part with them. But the arrival of fast fashion is changing that. In 2019, roughly 63 million kilograms of clothes were imported into Ghana from the UK. On a busy Saturday morning, Ogene meets Abena, just one of 30,000 traders who rely on good-quality second-hand clothes to make a living. But her livelihood has become a lottery. Buying in bulk, she has no idea what’s inside, and as her stock is unwrapped, Abena is left with piles of worthless items. What isn’t sold is going to waste and contributing to an environmental catastrophe. Fashion designer and activist Sammy believes that up to 40 per cent of everything imported into Ghana is now thrown away. This has created mountains of waste on the outskirts of the city, much of which can take up to 200 years to decompose, with excess waste spilling over into the city’s slums. On the beaches of Accra, Ogene discovers a waterfall of mangled clothing flowing from the city’s sewers straight into the ocean. Scientists reveal clothing-related plastics in seafood along the west coast of Africa, as the government weighs banning imports to safeguard the environment against protecting the diminishing livelihoods of traders.

Freedom : 50 Years Of Pride | Channel 4 2 July 2022

Freedom : 50 Years Of Pride | Channel 4 2
The inspiring and important story of five decades of LGBTQ+ activism, told by the people who were there. This year marks the 50th anniversary of UK Pride. In this feature-length documentary, made in collaboration with Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry, and playwright Joe Robertson and the BFI, Channel 4 looks back at the origins and development of a remarkable movement. With contributions from people with a close relationship to Pride from across the decades – including Olly Alexander, Bimini, Lady Phyll, Sir Ian McKellen, Holly Johnson, Peter Tatchell, Cat Burns, MNEK, Tom Robinson, and Lucia Blayke – it weaves interview testimony and archive material with a series of specially-shot performances at London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern. By turn heart-warming, mischievous, funny, shocking, and moving, this film explores the battles fought and the shifts in attitudes that have characterised queer activism over the last half-century; and explores the ways in which these changes have been influenced by and reflected at Pride. It tells some remarkable personal stories of courage, love, support, anger and determination that have defined 50 years of UK Pride. Part protest, part party, part performance, Pride has been and remains a vital, political, celebratory part of the ongoing battle for LGBTQ+ human rights. Exec Prods: Stephen Daldry, Joe Robertson, Alexander Leith, Simon George, Danielle Peck; Dirs: Peter Sweasey, Kim Maddever, Grace Chapman; Prod Co: BBC Studios
