On The Move
In the first episode of Assignment Asia, the program features human stories of people forced to move. Refugees in Thailand and refugees moving east from Syria. Anchor Tony Cheng (former BBC and Al Jazeera television) tells the story of the Rohingya refugees and a group in Thailand trying to stop the exploitation of these people by human traffickers. Then, the program travels to the other end of Asia — to Turkey to profile a teenager helping Syrian refugee children work through the psychological damage of war.
