World’s Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in India (2018)
During the winter, the valleys of the Indian Himalayas are secluded from the rest of the country. When spring arrives, the families from the hottest regions return to their villages in order to plough the fields. The trek home lasts many days and requires nerves of steel. Bus drivers graze the precipices and guzzle through roads barely wider than their vehicles. The truck drivers who supply the lost villages of the Himalayas act as tightrope walkers on 4,000 metre-high paths for minimal salaries.

In Guatemala there is a silent crisis of abuse and child pregnancies robbing a generation of their youth.
Unreported World reveals the stories of the young indigenous girls forced into motherhood after being raped and sexually assaulted. Isolated girls are particularly vulnerable, with no phone signal, and no neighbours.
In 2020, an average of 13 girls aged 10-14 became pregnant through rape in Guatemala every day. The cries of these young girls go unheard, reporter Anja Popp explores how the justice system appears to be failing these girls and learns that only three per cent of reported sexual violence cases are investigated.
Some girls are abandoned by their family due to shame with a few pressured to live with their abusers. But there are a handful of people and organisations trying to make a difference and teach young girls to understand their bodies and resist the cycle of abuse.
This episode contains testimony around sexual violence you may find distressing.

00:00 In the Gorkha region, far from the tourist circuits, residents regularly struggle against the monsoon. During these periods, mountain villages find themselves isolated for long months. Convoys of trucks and caravans of mules painfully try to supply the forgotten population. On the bus drivers’ side, they rarely fight for access.

Lesotho is a small kingdom enclosed in the vast territory of South Africa. This high-altitude country, one of the poorest in the world, has breathtaking landscapes, but above all it has a rare and precious asset in Africa: water. During the long winter months, the country is covered in snow and in the middle of the peeled-off mountains there is even a ski slope that is very popular with South Africans. On the dirt tracks and deserted roads that criss-cross the mountains, Alice and Fébellina struggle to find new customers for their old taxi. New encounters, mechanical problems, as well as anxiety and fits of laughter underline the two friends’ wanderings. Justice has no place in the heart of these lost mountains. Rustlers and other criminals sow terror in remote villages. The police do not venture there: there is no road. The only alternative to crime: the mounted militia. Ferocious horsemen who tirelessly chase bandits from valley to valley. They are nicknamed The Wrath of the Lion. In the no-man’s land that separates South Africa from Lesotho, vehicles must brave a winding road littered with pitfalls and cross the Sani Pass, a pass with a sinister reputation, under gusts of wind. There are few petrol stations in the interior; petrol is scarce. Reckless drivers brave the chasms to supply the lost villages.
