This series looks at the services we demand - and the people who provide them in the face of ignorance, distaste, even abuse.
Prostitution - the oldest profession - is also one of the most secret. There are 18,000 registered prostitutes in this country; in reality there are far more. The demand for their services is constant, yet they are treated as outcasts. In this film Angie and Gemma talk frankly about how they got 'on the game' and why they continue plying their dangerous trade. Film editor IAN PITCH
