Combining searing verbatim testimony with dramatic reconstruction.
When I’m writing articles, I’m not scared at all. I’m on a high. It’s such a rush. The fear comes later.
Sri Lankan brothers Lal and Lasantha dare to publish stories that others won’t touch, but at what cost? Meanwhile, in Mexico Lydia uncovers a child pornography ring involving senior politicians, Elena has a run-in with the Moscow mafia, Amira reports direct from the Israelioccupied territories and Zoriah comes up against the US Military over his Iraq war images. On the Record circumnavigates the globe to bring you true stories of six independent journalists, all linked by their determination to shed light on the truth.
