Cambodia: Selling the Killing Fields

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

Reporter Jenny Kleeman and producer Andy Wells report from Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, where land is now worth three times as much as two years ago.

The team investigate allegations that the Cambodian authorities are behind a policy of violent evictions of the country's poor from their homes. Unreported World reveals how, 30 years on from the fall of the Khmer Rouge, and at the same time as Pol Pot's accomplices are being put on trial for war crimes, Cambodia's people are once again being brutally driven from their land. This time, however, it is capitalism, not communism, that is displacing them - as growing numbers of tourists fuel a property boom that is having devastating results.

"Characteristically direct and unambiguous… another tale of breathtaking international awfulness."
- The Guardian

"Jenny Kleeman reports on the dark side of this economic miracle, investigating claims that poor people have been the victims of violent evictions to make way for property developers"
- The Observer
