Unreported World: Japan’s Wartime Sex Slaves

7.30pm, Channel 4

Korean Lee Yong-soo was 14 years old when she was taken by Japanese soldiers during the second world war to become one of its military’s thousands of sex slaves – so-called “comfort women”. Now 92, she is one of the last known survivors continuing to campaign for justice. Tracking her story, Unreported World meets a community of academics who accuse the women of lying about their experiences. But Lee stays unperturbed, taking her fight to powerful political figures with hopes of reaching the International Court of Justice. Hollie Richardson
