Undercover - Hate on the Doorstep

Two British Asian reporters pose as a couple living on a housing estate to investigate racism in Britain. Contains racially offensive language.

Bullied, attacked and racially-abused more than fifty times in eight weeks. That's the experience of two British Asian reporters posing as a couple and living undercover on a housing estate in Britain during summer 2009.

In a shocking insight into race hate and anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods, Tamanna Rahman was pelted with glass and stones and threatened with a brick during an attempted mugging by an 11-year-old boy. Her "husband," Amil Khan, was punched in the head. Yet the head of the government's equality watchdog has said that having a neighbour of a different ethnic background isn't an issue any more.

Panorama investigates the truth about racism and anti-social behaviour in Britain today.

Contains racially offensive language.
