Working in the Thai rice industry

A group of British students pick rice in Thailand for about 25p an hour. If they don't finish, they won't get paid and won't be able to buy food. With high temperatures and backbreaking work, the group cannot get the job done. As they work, they ask Thai workers about their lives. At the end of the day, they are paid only half the sum they expected and can only eat bread and bananas.
