The changing society and lifestyle of West Africa is highlighted in RTD’s Senegal documentaries
Globalisation is turning what were once far-flung outposts into next-door neighbours. In West Africa, countries are standing up for their rights as we discover in the documentary Fishing Wars. Countries like Senegal are reclaiming their fishing grounds from foreign trawlers who’ve been plundering their waters for decades. But keeping up with the developed world has its drawbacks. In the film Beauty and the Bleach, we investigate the illicit use of banned skin-whitening cosmetics in Senegal.
