Fakes is the human story of the fastest rising crime of our times, worth billions of dollars a year. A generation ago some of the world's top brands were outsourced to the East to take advantage of cheap labour. Now it is payback time as counterfeited goods, produced in industrial quantities, are flooding the western markets. Nothing is safe, with everything from toothpaste to toys and mobile phones to car parts being counterfeited. And lives are being put at risk as even prescription medicines are being faked. In Nigeria, as much as 40 percent of drugs in circulation are counterfeit, and record quantities have now been detected in the UK. The series travels to China, Nigeria and Thailand to meet the fakers, and the men and women risking their lives to take them on.
