Paul Seabright explores our trading past: the part slavery has played in the story of global trade. From 2018.
The exchange of human beings for work or sex or other forms of enslavement has been a feature of human society throughout history.
Paul Seabright looks at the part slavery has played in the industrialisation of the western world, and in the lives of countless unsuspecting people who were captured and transported as a result of trading activity on the other side of the globe.
Producer: Chris Ledgard.
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 2018.
