“Blood, Sweat and T-shirts”…

…is the name of a BBC mini-programme which takes 6 young fashion conscious (obsessed) Brits to India to experience life in the garment industry. While it is half reality tv and half documentary, the programme explores the questions of working conditions, wages, and the lack of other options for some skilled workers trying to support their families. If you’re in the UK, give it a try on the BBC iplayer or on BBC3. It may not do much to change the majority of viewers, but a national corporation bringing these issues into general discussion is always a positive step. Here are some video clips from the website.
