Hardcore Profits 28 Aug 2009
What effect is Western pornography having on women in the Third World?

Next Monday on BBC 2, award-winning journalist Tim Samuels will be revealing the household name companies who discreetly profit from pornography and in the first of a two-part series, he discovers that the global spread of porn is having far-reaching consequences for women in the Third World. Tim joins Jenni to describe his filming in Ghana where young men told him how they copy Western porn stars by ditching condoms and women in rural villages talked about their failing marriages which are caused by their husbands’ addiction to porn.

‘Hardcore Profits’ is broadcast on BBC 2 on Monday, 31st August and Monday, 7th September at 10pm.
