Fake Britain, Series 2 Episode 8 of 16

With Dominic Littlewood.

We reveal the extraordinary story of the secret consignment of fake oil drilling parts tracked down by trading standards officers in Peterborough. We follow Customs and Excise officers on the trail of fake diesel - agricultural fuel that has had its red tell tale dye removed - and the criminals who peddle it.

We meet the owners of so called mini pigs who have seen the fake perky porkers grow to be a lot bigger than expected. We meet the victims of an incredible scam; they have come home to find someone else living in their house - it's been rented out by a fake landlord.

And we show the work of the undercover investigators from a software corporation who are tackling the software pirates.
