A FIVE News mini series directed by Chris Bryer. Award-winning photojournalist Hazel Thompson has spent months investigating the plight of Britain’s underage runaways. A shocking 100,000 children go on the run every year.
Program 1 follows Hazel as she investigates where many youngsters hide. “I didn’t plan to run away” says Danielle “and I didn’t think it was dangerous at the time.” Program 2 follows the frightening risks Danielle and other like her face when they run. And Program 3 investigates if the government is delivering on their promises to help runaways, and what needs to be done.
"It was a very successful series. Very passionate , very moving and memorable too." - Chris Shaw, Senior Programme Controller News, Current Affairs and Docs FIVE.
