The KBS team obtained a South Korean government report documenting years of industrial pollution in the East Sea. They interviewed fishermen who said their catches were contaminated. Analysis of sampled crabs revealed high concentrations of heavy metals in them. The story includes on-site examination of a location where pollutants were discharged into the sea. The investigators looked at the British government's solutions to offshore dumping in British waters.
