Several videos have also been produced by LHRLA in collaboration with both domestic and foreign TV channels.

BBC Documentary - "The Trafficking of Women"

The making of this documentary was facilitated by the LHRLA. It is a documentary on the flesh trade in Pakistan. It gives a brief history of how the victims are brought to Pakistan and has interviews with Mr. Abdul Sattar Edhi and Mr. Zia Ahmed Awan. There is also an interview of a pimp and his agent. It is a very powerful and moving film.

Talk shows hosted by Mr. Zia Ahmed Awan

These were called '50 minutes' and there were three separate shows. They dealt with the problems of water and sewerage, child labour and the judicial system. There were eminent members on the panel; the discussion was carried on between the participants and the guests and the host. Most of the guests were not able to give adequate answers to the questions raised by members of the audience.

Mr. Zia Ahmed Awan of LHRLA conceived the central idea and the plays were written by Mr. Hameed Kashmiri and directed by Mr. Shahid Iqbal Pasha. It was a televised series of real life cases that LHRLA is dealing with, and was telecast by Pakistan Television Corporation, Karachi Centre.
