Production Notes

Helen Mirren’s segment aried on December 10, 1993: Over 150 million children, some as young as 5 and 6, are at work in the world today. Actress Helen Mirren examines this phenomenon and follows the lives of a family of young girls working in Pakistan’s carpet factories. “What affects me most,” she says, “is children’s vulnerability to exploitation. They can’t fight back, they can’t organise, they can’t protect themselves.”
