PBS Documentary on Illegal Trade

Last week a PBS documentary aired about illicit trade and the organized crime syndicates behind it. Very well done with footage from Panama, Colombia, China, Italy, New York and California- The Dark Trade sheds light on the worldwide network of illegal trade that transports everything from fake medicine, counterfeit purses and people around the world generating profits of approximately $650 billion a year.

Hopefully they will be re-airing it in the near future.
