Ivory Coast: Blood and Chocolate

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

Reporter Evan Williams and Producer James Brabazon travel to the Ivory Coast to investigate the murderous civil war taking place over the cocoa crops destined to be turned into the world’s chocolate.

While blood diamonds grab the headlines, the control of the crop in a country that provides 43% of the world's cocoa is all-important. Williams needs an armed guard to travel through villages abandoned after fighting, telling a tale of lives destroyed and a country poised to suffer another civil war when the United Nations forces leave.

"…truly disturbing…"
