Angels of Sinjar: Hanna Polak on documenting the horror of Isis
Hanna Polak's extraordinary film Angels of Sinjar details one woman's fight to find her five sisters, who were abducted and sold into sexual slavery by Isis. Of all the barbaric acts committed by Isis, the genocide of the Yezidi people stunned the world. In August 2014 Isis carried out an attack in the Sinjar area of northern Iraq, home to the Yezidis. Men and boys who refused to convert to Islam were killed and dumped in mass graves. Thousands of women and girls were forced to become sexual slaves and many remain captive. Polish director, cinematographer and producer Hanna Polak's new documentary follows one woman's fight to be reunited with her five sisters, who were abducted, raped and sold into slavery. It's not Hanna's first foray into telling the stories of those fighting on the fringes - her documentary The Children of Leningradsky about Moscow's streetkids - was nominated for an Oscar and two Emmys. Angels of Sinjar is screening now as part of the DocEdge festival.

New pig welfare code facing stiff opposition
New Zealand's pig farming sector says a new draft welfare code for pigs could spell the end of the country's pork industry. The National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee has drafted a new code, following a High Court ruling in November 2020 that deemed farrowing crates unlawful. It's proposing a range of changes to the way pigs are cared for, including increased space allowances, restrictions on farrowing crates and an increased weaning age. But New Zealand's pig farming body NZ Pork says the new code could lead to the deaths of 60,000 piglets every year and would require almost every indoor and outdoor pig farm in the country to be partly or totally re-built. Lynn speaks with Dr Gwyneth Verkerk, the chair of the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee and Brent Kleiss, chief executive of NZ Pork.

Six weeks on a steamer boat: Touring Edwardian New Zealand
Travelling to, and around, New Zealand was a major investment in time in the early 20th century. So what made tourists - mainly from Britain - undertake the journey? And how was the country sold to would-be travellers at the time? Historian Paul Moon has written about it in a new book called Touring Edwardian New Zealand. He looks at the Thomas Cook guidebook, first published in 1902, and how the fledgling tourism industry operated at a time when New Zealand was still dealing with tensions between Maori and Pakeha, and wrestling with its colonial ties to Britain.
