Greenlit: Missing Presumed Married, BBC3

Missing Presumed Married (1×60′) –  Last year government statistics estimated at least 8,000 young British people were forced into marriage in order to uphold an ancient code of honour. Two years in the making – from the team that made BBC Three’s Bafta-nominated Honour Kills – this thought-provoking documentary series examines the extraordinary, often violent lengths that some families will go to in order to prevent their daughters selecting their own marriage partners.

With ground-breaking access to 17 UK police forces; the Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Crown Prosecution Service; and non-government charity organizations, the series follows four young British women as they attempt to live their own lives and break free from their family ties.
