Undercover: Inside China’s Digital Gulag

15th July 2019 | ITV1

The Chinese government is holding an estimated million or more Muslims in detention camps without trial. It’s the largest incarceration of an ethnic group since World War II.

Cameras go undercover into China’s secretive Xinjiang region to investigate. They record honest and critical voices, talking about the scale of the human rights abuses. The undercover team gathers evidence of the Chinese government’s work with technology companies, revealing a new form of governance that is controlling citizens and being exported around the world, challenging human freedom and liberal democracy. The film follows the victims of this new system. It looks at the wider strategy which the Chinese government seems to be pursuing in Xinjiang, which appears to threaten the very survival of Uyghur and Muslim culture in China.
