The Tongue Cutters – Repeats Wednesday @ 12.55am
Cod season is the backdrop of the story of Ylva (9) and Tobias (10). Ylva lives in Oslo and comes to visit her grandparents – and to learn cod tongue cutting. Tobias has worked on the docks since he was six and is already skilled with the knife. Now he is to tutor Ylva. We follow their friendship and get to see how children, when given the opportunity, take on responsibility for work, life and for each other.
The Hidden Side of Animal Transport – Thursday @ 10.00pm
Shocking undercover footage shows how animals exported from Europe as livestock are routinely exposed to inhumane conditions and abused. A ruling that EU animal welfare regulations should remain in place until the very end of the journey is not being imposed. We investigate the hidden side of Europe’s trade in live animals.
