Turkey: Killing for Honour

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

In this week's Unreported World, Reporter Ramita Navai and Producer Matt Haan travel to south-eastern Turkey to investigate so-called 'Honour Killings'.

As Turkey modernizes in a bid for EU membership, the team discovers the ancient traditions are still resulting in hundreds of women being murdered every year, sometimes for as little as standing too close to an unmarried man.

"The chilling documentary…casts a new light on the country that is visited by more than a million Brits a year."
- The Sun

"The film is as necessary as it is depressing."
- The Guardian
