Every summer thousands of Thai workers comb Sweden’s forests searching for berries - a job Swedes won’t do. What drives these people halfway round the globe to harvest berries in less than ideal conditions?

Chang is one of about six thousand Thai migrant workers who come to Sweden to work the summer harvest every year. Rather than toiling in a rice paddy at home, he spends up to twelve hours a day gathering blueberries and lingonberries. It’s Chang’s first time in Sweden, but he sees it as a great chance to earn good money. But even though an agency hired him and got him his visa and air ticket, Chang had to borrow money to finance his living expenses and will have to pay that back before he sees a cent of the guaranteed minimum wage of nearly two thousand Euros a month.
Investigative journalist Mats Wingborg has been following the fruit pickers from Thailand for a long time. He says, "The system is wide-open to fraud. The Thais also have to work at least a month to pay their debts. If the harvest is bad, some of them may even still be in debt when they go back home.”

Nueng the elephant is an attraction for rides - though it's unlikely to be his choice. The 30 year old male is one of the elephants in the Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

Taking an elephant ride is at the top of many tourists' wishlists. It's a thriving business, particularly with Chinese holidaymakers. However, resistance to this popular spectacle is growing among animal welfare organisations. Consequently, many elephant camps now only offer visitors the chance to feed the animals or bathe with them. Yet these "No riding" camps disappoint most tourists. Many animal welfare activists are convinced that elephants in captivity are subjected to a cruel taming procedure when they are young. The staff responsible for the camp would rather not say whether Nueng and the other elephants have been tortured in this way. We accompany Nueng the riding elephant on a typical day's work. A report by Florian Nusch.

Tarchi Ausavapichayachote is a transgender person in Thailand. She was born a boy but identifies as female. Now she is having surgery done to get breast implants. She wants nothing more than to feminize her body.

Tarchi's mother has long accepted that her child wants sex change surgery, although her father has struggled to come to terms with this wish. Tarchi, now 19 years old, has been taking hormone pills since she was 15.

Of course her parents noticed the physical changes to her body. Now Tarchi wants to take the next step and feminize her body by getting silicone breast implants. How does she feel after the procedure? A report by Florian Nusch.

Bangkok's fire department catches more snakes than it extinguishes fires. During the rainy season the reptiles often hide in peoples' homes. With snakes ranging from harmless to highly poisonous, fireman Sontaya Wangjam never knows what to expect.

The Thai capital Bangkok has been growing tremendously in recent years. But this means the natural habitat of some 200 different snake species indigenous to the region is slowly disappearing. Sontaya Wangjam’s job is to catch some of the most venomous of them. The snake catcher has thick, protective gloves and a variety of traps to ensnare the reptiles. Though carnivorous snakes also play an important role in keeping Bangkok’s rat population under control. Florian Nusch reports.

Plastic garbage and the death of the coral reefs show the downside of mass tourism in Thailand, which hosted 36 million visitors in 2018. The documentary looks at the effects on tourist resorts above and below water.

Ten years ago there were 20 million fewer tourists. Today’s mass tourism has both social and ecological consequences. Most of the Thailand’s popular tourist resorts discharge untreated sewage into the sea, and plastic waste ends up in the water.

This is killing off the fragile coral reefs along the coast. The countless hotels and restaurants mainly serve fresh fish, so fishing boats are using giant trawl nets, which are also destroying the coral. The internationally renowned marine ecologist Thon Thamrongnawasawa from the University of Bangkok says 77 percent of Thailand's coral reefs have been severely damaged.

Meanwhile, the locals in popular tourist resorts hardly benefit from the huge numbers of holidaymakers at all. They work for the minimum wage and are often pushed out by guest workers from neighboring Myanmar, who are willing to work for even less money. Small local restaurants lose out when the big tour operators take their guests on all-inclusive excursions.

The filmmakers first visited Thailand a few years ago, shooting enchanting footage of the still intact underwater world in many places. Now they are back there again to look at the consequences of unrestricted tourism - both above and below the waterline.

In Bangkok, divers hunt for treasure that's lain on the riverbed of the Chao Phraya for centuries.

For generations, families living along Bangkok's Chao Phraya river have been diving for the more-or-less valuable treasures found on the riverbed. It's their livelihood and their huts lie right on the riverbank.

Mana Onsgaard is a treasure diver. He plunges 20 meters down to the bed of Bangkok's Chao Phraya river, looking for valuables that have been there for centuries. But digging around in the muddy riverbed can be dangerous. Divers must wear gloves to avoid cuts and losing their fingernails, which become soft from being immersed in water for so long.

Their finds include old teak wood, various metals, ropes, ceramics and old glass bottles -- anything they can sell for cash. Sometimes they even search for cameras or cell phones that tourists have let fall into the river. Depending on their luck, some divers earn up to 500 euros a month -- just enough to feed a family.

But soon treasure diving could be a thing of the past on the Chao Phraya, as the city wants to put a stop to the practice.
