Watch the full movie here:
“Robert Beckford visits Ghana to investigate the hidden costs of rice, chocolate and gold and why, 50 years after independence, a country so rich in natural resources is one of the poorest in the world. He discovers child labourers farming cocoa instead of attending school and asks if the activities of mulitnationals, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have actually made the country’s problems worse.”
