Opium Trail 8:00, 2007 (Ref: ME07471)


An amazing film showing a shoot-out between drug smugglers and Iranian border guards and a visit to a heroin refinery.

The war on terror was supposed to have brought an end to it but Afghanistan is still the world’s number one producer of heroin.

Almost ninety percent of the the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan, with much of it finding its way onto the streets of Europe and the USA.

The UK has the lead role in the war on Afghan drugs but has been criticised by America for not doing enough. Thousands of British troops are about to police the region.
