Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion-dollar business? In Switzerland there's a company which has developed the art to perfection - Nestle. This company dominates the global business in bottled water, generating $10 billion a year. Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestle refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was "the wrong film at the wrong time". So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.
Reporter Kiki King and director Ruhi Hamid travel to Mexico, which has become an international hotspot for the fast expanding, multi-billion-dollar child surrogacy industry. The global child surrogacy industry is estimated to be worth two billion US dollars a year. Prospective parents are attracted to Mexico because it's cheaper - a successful surrogacy costs around US$45,000, less than half the price in the United States. And it's become a favoured destination for prospective parents around the world after controversies and clampdowns in India and Thailand. However, in Mexico they discover a disturbing situation, which can put surrogate mothers at risk - not least because implantations can be carried out before legally binding contracts are signed, placing the ownership of the baby in question.
Valued at over £4 billion a year, the fast food industry is big business and even bigger controversy. With its globally recognised but fiercely protected recipe for fried chicken, KFC is one of the brands that has divided public opinion. Love it or hate it, the fact is that very little is known about what goes on behind the scenes. Now for the first time KFC exclusively throws open its doors in a tell-all documentary series. The series takes viewers into the heart of the company and into the hearts of its loyal and disloyal customers and reveals why we have become addicted to fried chicken and chips. It beds in with the KFC brand, from the boardroom to the kitchen, and reveals the truth about the company that we all think we know.
