Unreported World - Witches on Trial

Aired November 12, 2010 on Channel 4

In villages and the capital witchcraft is used to explain every misfortune and it is such a powerful weapon that it is a feature of almost every family quarrel or village dispute. And, as Reporter Seyi Rhodes and director Julie Noon reveal, it's often the most vulnerable who are singled out.
