Nominated for best international investigative documentary at the AIB Awards 2015.
Marshall Corwin (Producer/Camera) and Chris Rogers (Reporter) filmed undercover in Guatemala City’s notorious mental hospital, where patients suffer neglect and sexual abuse at the hands of those meant to care for them. The disturbing documentary was broadcast on BBC World News and BBC News Channel on the weekend of 5 December 2014, along with a half hour radio documentary on BBC World Service in the ‘Assignment’ strand.
The documentary prompted immediate reaction from the Guatemalan Government. Within a day of broadcast the Health Minister made an emergency visit to the institution promising urgent action.
