Stolen (BBC-1 2011, Damian Lewis)

Thriller Stolen (which was originally known as Taken) takes us headlong into the troubling world of human traffiking. Damian Lewis headlines as Detecive Inspector Anthony Carter who gets way too personally involved in his job in the Human Trafficking Unit. On the wall in his office he has a wall of photographs of unknown children all of whom have been smuggled into the country to be used as exploitative labour and often much much worse. Anthony is determined to make a difference and begins investigating the plight of three children in particular – 11 year old West African girl Rosemary; 15 year old Kim Pak from Vietnam and 14 year old Georgie from the Ukraine.

It’s a disturbing subject of course and naturally any drama that highlights the all too real plights of children (and adults) caught up in this world is definitely to be applauded.
