"This World" is a documentary strand featuring investigative reports from around the world. The series began in 2004 with an opening edition charting the rise of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. Stories in recent years have included a documentary on the desperate measures men in China will take to marry in a country that has millions more men than women, a piece on the work of government-supported psychics in Vietnam who help families searching for relatives who disappeared during the war, and a report on the efforts of a children's charity in Central America to stamp out the burgeoning child sex trade in Costa Rica. The first new edition of 2011 saw Fergal Keane meeting families of victims of military violence in Thailand and investigating allegations of a cover-up among the country's ruling elite. It can be seen on BBC Two.
