The Indian flag and a Goan beach

The Global Account programmes are free-standing documentaries that uncover the secrets that those in positions of authority would prefer to stay hidden.

The programmes are presented by the BBC's top radio reporters. Their brief: to tell difficult - and sometimes dangerous - stories with determination and style.

A defining feature of this collection is the gathering of first-hand evidence and testimony, followed by the cross-examination of those in authority.

Part Four: Paedophiles in India

Thousands of tourists visit the Indian state of Goa's beautiful beaches every year, but in this BBC investigation Allan Urry discovers a darker side to beach life in a tropical paradise.

Foreigners are travelling to Goa to sexually abuse children, and the local authorities are turning their back on the problem.

Allan travels to Goa to speak to charities, NGOs and government ministers and finds out that boys and girls as young as ten are indeed being made available for sex to foreign tourists.

As tourism in Goa grows bigger and bigger, will this problem get worse and worse?
