Bhopal - An Enduring Tragedy

Twenty-five years after the gas leak at the Union Carbide chemical factory in Bhopal, Allan Little finds out why people there are still suffering to this day.

Twenty-five years ago, a gas leak at a Union Carbide chemicals plant in Bhopal released 40 tonnes of poisonous gases over the Indian city, killing thousands of people and injuring tens of thousands more.

Allan Little travels to Bhopal to find out who is responsible for the lack of action.
