Zimbabwe's Blood Diamonds

Channel 4: Unreported World

Despite claims that all is well in Zimbabwe under the coalition government, reporter Ramita Navai and director Alex Nott find a country still gripped by terror and violence when they film undercover to investigate claims that gems from one of the world's biggest diamond fields are being used by Robert Mugabe's Zanu PF party to entrench their hold on power by buying the military's loyalty. 

This is against a backdrop of human rights abuses, which victims say are being perpetrated by the military and the police. Filming covertly, the team experience a climate of fear reminiscent of the pre-coalition Mugabe years.
