Heroin Trade (1994): We travel to the trading town of Mandalay, north on the Burma road to the military stronghold of Lashio, and then on to a remote area in the Golden Triangle. The government hails this region as a success story in its anti-drugs campaign.
This is the home of the Wa tribe, once at war with the Burmese government and still claimed by drug agencies to be the biggest poppy growers in the world. While top army and police officers claim they are halting the heroin trade, critics say corruption is rife - some convoys carrying heroin are comprised of official vehicles.
