Today in Verona at the 59th Prix Italia "A Killer Bargain" won the prestigious Prix Italia TV Documentary price, the jury said:
"A Killer Bargain’ is powerful investigative journalism with a worldwide significance. A brave work which researches the way in which some big companies have goods cheaply produced in India but sold for large profits in European markets. The cost to many Indian factory workers and their communities includes pollution, illness and death. The programme proves its case in a compelling forensic narrative and challenges both globalised economic interests, as well as its viewers as consumers of cheap goods."
