If you are in Aust. or NZ you will be able to watch the program over the web, I am not sure about access in other countries.

 

The in the doco the investigative reporters found many children in forced labour with no pay or schooling.

Child slave labor is a major issue with the cacao used by a lot of the "big boys" of chocolate manufacturing. It is truly difficult to maintain integrity when dealing with through-puts the size of a companies like, oh say, Hersheys.

This is a huge problem, and is exactly why it is encouraged for consumers to support artisan chocolate producers, and chocolate producers to develop relationships with cacao growers, at lease in my opinion.
