Most western kids have a pair of trainers. But not many think about where the shoes are made or who makes them. Presenter Stacey Dooley travels with five British kids to Malaysia to find out what it’s like to work in a shoe factory. But there’s drama right from the start when one person doesn’t even make it to the factory.


Five British children travel to the other side of the world to see first-hand how their favourite things are made, beginning with a trainers factory in Malaysia. While one participant does not even make it to work, the other four struggle to adhere to the strict rules set by their manager - and all are shocked by their stay in a workers' hostel.
