Cambodian TV programme re unites families split by Khmer Rouge

It comes more than 34 years after the Khmer Rouge were ousted from power. For some Cambodians, justice isn’t the only thing that has taken decades. Many families torn apart by the Khmer Rouge are still missing their loved ones. Now, there’s a service to bring them back together - the only catch is that the drama unfolds on national television.
