“A harrowing documentary about the impact of poverty on children was aired on BBC One last Monday evening. Eyes of the Child, viewed by millions, was followed by an hour-long debate on its content on Newsnight.
The film crew who worked on the programme were responsible for a previous groundbreaking documentary that looked behind the scenes of China’s orphanages. Filmed for the Inside Story series, their latest documentary showed children the length of the country. It was also groundbreaking in that it allowed the children to talk about the conditions they live in and their hopes for the future, in their own words.”
