Filmmaker Tom Evans and field producer Ghassan Khader spent one month following two factories and two import-export agents as well as some of the workers of Nablus to get a sense of the daily realities of an economy under the Israeli occupation.

They went to find out how illegal land seizures, restrictions, controls, and the Israeli military presence affect business, workers and clients. 

Witness presenter Ghida Fakhry talks to Tom Evans about the film and some of the the issues behind it.

Preview: The Business of Occupation can be sen from Thursday, September 16, at the following times GMT: Thursday: 0830, 1900; Friday: 0330, 1400, 2330.
