This is a portrait of a young girl who is the swimming “champion of champions” in Iran and yet faces no competitors. A female champion who, in spite of Islamic recommendations about learning how to swim and her own personal skills, finds no place in contemporary Iran. 

The Fight For Hambach Forest

Germany's 12,000 year-old Hambach Forest has turned into a battle ground between activists and police. Activists camping out in tree houses are fighting to stop German energy giant, RWE, from destroying the last tiny patch of Hambi that's left and the police are powerless to stop them.

Race Hate in the UK

It seems at times like a nationalistic rage has swept over Britain and Islamophobia is rampant. But is the British far-right fuelled by the refugee crisis of 2015 or is the establishment to blame? Redfish travels from
Leeds to London to investigate the rise of race hate in the UK.

Apartheid Continued

Although Namibia gained independence nearly 30 years ago, the deep inequalities of the colonial era still continue. Namibia’s white minority continues to control a hugely disproportionate share of the country’s land, which perpetuates the racially-driven economic inequalities in the country. Redfish investigates how apartheid endures in Namibia in all but name and the report includes interviews with political leaders and social activists such as Bernadus Swartbooi, who leads the Landless People’s Movement.
