>> it's an illegal act. >> which denies people the right to make their own decision about what they want to do with their bodies. >> yeah. >> wow. >> a lot of these things make you think. welcome. >> thank you. >> you've been in 21 countries in the last year filming this. right? >> at least. if you count britain, that's 22. yeah. i've been to a few places. >> when you listen to a guy like this, talking about human you usually think people with white hats on and black hats. good and evil, but sometimes it gets a little muddy. doesn't it? >> really interesting, making this series, figuring out that actually we are all involved and everything is gray. it's easy to think that there's a seedy guy, down some shadowing alleyway selling organs or gold or rhino horn, but actually, we're all involved in some stage. >> how is that? >> yeah. i mean, child trafficking and human trafficking?
nothing moves unless somebody stamps something, a customs officer looks a certain way, a police officer stops a certain car. usually we say they're the right people, doing the right job. what we found in our series, "the traffickers" actually everybody's involved in a way. at the end of the day, ladies, people who buy the goods, whether it's rhino horn or sex or children are the people who are allowing these markets to continue. >> wow. more -- >> i can only imagine the sticky or scary situations you, yourself, have been in. a journalist because want to make a difference. do you ever -- describe what it's like to be you on the road sometimes? >> often dangerous. isn't it? >> well it is, yes, and i think my team, who involves loads of people so hard working behind the scenes all try really hard to protect me and mitigate any risks we take.

that i'm compelled to tell the stories of people, sometimes children, sometimes victims in tough spots, who can't tell the story themselves. so i just feel like it's my responsibility as a refugee, as a woman, as a brown person to just go out there and do these things. >> a beautiful brown person. >> aren't you two lovely. >> we patient it. thank you so much. >> congratulations. >> you're amazing. >> you really are. >> catch the premiere of "the traffickers" this sunday night. >> don't you feel shallow? >> i do. >>m. >> dolly parton inspiring movie of her own family members. >> that's after this. mary lane haskell coming up. it's amazing out there means to me the wonder and the wow of weather. >> everything is amazing. it could be the smallest ice crystal.

difference. >> somebody just walks up to you in the field and says, thanks for being there. we're so glad you were here to take us through it. >> we have a charge. we have a responsibility. we have a drive to provide information to people, to help them, help their families stay safe. >> when you start linking the people side up to the weather and the science and the data, it makes a real connection that drives home the importance of what we do. >> i love weather. >> i love the weather. and i love working with people who love the weather. this is what we love to do. >> every single day is going to be something spectacular.
