The Secret World of Shoplifting

The Secret World of Shoplifting, airing Monday, Feb. 15, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, on THE PASSIONATE EYE, on CBC News Network examines the rise in retail crime and how the consumer’s quest for the lowest discount price fuels the market for stolen merchandise. Featuring security camera footage, the latest crime-fighting technology and interviews from both sides of the law, this documentary investigates why people steal, who is stealing, what retailers are doing to stop it and how shoplifting affects all of us.

From Merit Motion Pictures and directed by Andrew Blicq for CBC TV, The Secret World of Shoplifting is not a documentary solely about stealing—it is also about the test of honesty in an economic downturn.
