Hi all

Just to update my previous post:

"Welcome To Lagos" will be broadcast on BBC 2 on Thursday 15 April at 9pm. A series of 3 hour long documentaries, the first episode will focus on the lives of 2 individuals ekeing out an existence living and scavenging on the local rubbish dump. Link to BBC site:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00s3bmx

No sign yet of the promised Louis Theroux report. Sad Will keep an eye out.

You will get the "Hard Drive lads" here, they use to dump old computers from the UK here and the lads use to take out the hard drives and see what personnel info they could get on it, credit card details bank accounts etc.....etc.....
There was a news story about this last year, i pass this dump about once every 3-4 weeks.

OK so just which of you "Bar Stewards" have convinced the Lad on the box at the moment that he is a promising pop star and to get him to spend his last 4,000 Naira on a photoshoot for the forthcoming album release?????? Very Happy

I am watching it. It is a decent programme with a decent commentator. Basically its is about people living in slums trying to make a living from what they can. I have seen similar programmes from India to Brazil etc

Not really anything that I didn't expect. Basically a Grade A shit-hole.
Loved how the narrator tried to polish a turd.

"Come to the dumps of Lagos and see what a great life you Westerners have been missing out on".

"These fuckers might be poor but everyone loves each other. Everyone trusts each other.".
The next moment some dude's getting the shit kicked out of him for stealing, another dude's lost an eye and some other asshole is trying to rip off the cow seller.

"They don't have to lock their doors like people in the West".
Dude, the fucking door was a piece of plastic held down with a stick. Couldn't lock the bastard if you tried.

Yeah. Made me so envious.

Already using it in a bait...

Quote:
I will have you know that I have already applied for an entry visa to Nigeria so I will be able to come in a couple of weeks. Will you or your representatives please arrange accommodation in Lagos, the necessary armed security and meeting at and transfer from the airport. I watched a television documentary (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00s3vdm) about your city last night and it appears to be a hideous, lawless place and so I will need you to arrange these things.


I guess I can see why the life of a 419er seems like a decent career option.

"Now let me see, I can sit in this nice cyber cafe with its fans and cold drinks all day sending out hundreds of emails or I can toil 18 hours a day up to my neck in shite boiling cow's blood over burning rubber tyres to earn 20p a week. What should I do..."

Apart from that I think SOOI said everything that needs to be said.

For me, the programme was a fascinating insight into a way of life so very alien to anything I have experienced. Hats off to the people, who out of necessity and opportunism, created livelihoods and a 'village' on a rubbish dump.

I agree with Buck Turgidson's post, amazing programme and very moving to watch.

The people in the documentary are decent hardworking and honest, wonder how they would view 'lads'?

Was glad to see another side of Lagos and can't wait for the next episode.

Not all of them. We saw one guy get hit over the head with a bottle and take another guy's eye out. We saw another try to short weigh, another taking notes out of a bundle so it was short, another stealing junk and then getting beaten up and kicked off the dump (he'd probably have been killed if the cameras weren't there), another refusing to return change to a guy who had just bought his scrap, etc, etc.

The culture of shitting on the other guy was alive and well, however much the narrator tried to gloss over it.

I agree with devil_woman. Everyone was working hard in their own unique ways to irke a living. Thats the unique thing with slums all over the world. I watched one (i believe it was C4 Peter Boyle season) about the slums in Delhi. With regards to how they see the 'lads', i believe they won't have much regard for them. They will despise them because these scums want money the easy way and don't want to work for it like the rest of the society.
