As Cameroon's jungle shrinks, pygmies' lifestyle is under threat

In eastern Cameroon, over 20,000 hectares of virgin forest are disappearing every year due to logging, forcing the indigenous Baka pygmies out of the jungle they rely on for survival. They're often forced to try to make a living performing menial tasks for low pay by the roadside. As a result, increasing numbers of pygmies are falling into alcohol and substance abuse. Our team went to meet them.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Aline Schmidt.
