A migrant tale with a sinister twist
TV ON DEMAND
Five years ago, Rob Lawrie, a former soldier who was volunteering at a refugee camp in Calais, was arrested at the border for trying to smuggle an Afghan girl into Britain. This fascinating ten-part BBC series uncovers how Bru, the ‘girl taken’, came to meet her unlikely smuggler and the impact that Lawrie’s rash decision had on his family. The tale is sharply reported and full of swooping reveals. I gobbled it up.
