Britain’s Private War

BBC Scotland investigates the UK’s armed sector of the private security industry which is estimated to be worth, globally, as much as £400 billion. Where there’s conflict, there are contracts. This is a programme about the outsourcing of war, the deaths of former soldiers the public aren’t being told about and an unregulated industry which is getting rich in all our names.

In this film reporter Samantha Poling hears stories of how former servicemen are dying in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan, whilst working under contract for the UK government, all of which is of course being payed for by tax payer.
