Summary

Panorama puts Primark's claims that it can deliver cheap, fast fashion without breaking ethical guidelines to the test. Posing as industry buyers in India, Tom Heap and his team find some of India's poorest people working long gruelling hours in slum workshops and refugee camps breaking Primark promises on child labour, working hours and wages. When presented with the results Primark sacked suppliers and announced it was setting up a children's foundation.
