Haiti: The island that ate itself

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

Haiti hits the headlines last year when it was devastated by yet another hurricane.

This week’s Unreported World returns to the island, where reporter Aidan Hartley and producer Alex Nott find that it’s still in a state of emergency. Locked in a vicious cycle of environmental disaster, hunger, poverty, and reliance on international aid, Haiti is an extreme example of what’s happening to many of the world’s poorest countries.

"Another harrowing documentary from an excellent series."
- The Guardian

"It’s hard to tell which is more horrifying. Either the images we see…or the story that slowly unfolds with narrative."
- The Observer
