Undercover Journalism in North Korea
The BBC takes a fascinating look at a handful of brave North Koreans who risk imprisonment to reveal the truth about life in Kim Jong-Il's totalitarian "paradise":
In the Chinese city of Yanji, just a few kilometres from the North Korean border, one of the most risky journalistic endeavours ever undertaken is taking shape.
A North Korean citizen is being trained in the techniques of using a hidden camera.
His identity is a closely guarded secret, so he chooses to use the name Lee Jun.
Mr Lee is one of a group of citizen journalists that has begun working inside North Korea, producing written reports and video footage which are then smuggled to the outside world.
He has crossed the border on numerous occasions, bringing hours of material showing everyday life in the street, on trains, even in police stations.
His images, caught on a camera concealed inside his bag, give a rarely seen glimpse of one of the world's most closed societies.
