Everyday, everywhere in the world, millions of people are on the move, traveling from poor countries to wealthier ones, desperately looking for work. With western governments zealously guarding their borders these desperate migrants need help to cross them and there are plenty of criminals willing to do it at a price ... a price that traps people in conditions of forced labor and slavery.

Michael Goldfarb's latest report for Inside Out Documentaries, "Snakeheads and Slavery," looks at the traffic in human beings into Britain. He outlines the scale of human traffic globally: worth an estimated 36 billion dollars a year; and speaks with people from Eastern Europe and China who risked everything to come to Britain and spent years working in forced prostitution and debt bondage.
