Illegal Organ Trading (Panorama)

September 16, 2020

In a disturbing documentary, Dr Sean Columb from Liverpool University goes to Egypt to investigate the illegal trade in human organs. We hear tales of people tricked into selling organs for less than they expected, of others being drugged and waking up having had a kidney removed, even bodies of murdered individuals found in the desert with multiple organs missing.

The programme is available on the BBC iPlayer and, for member institutions, via the BoB service.
