Risky, under-the-radar journeys to Europe are nothing new, but you wouldn’t think that from all the talk of a ‘migration crisis’ in the past couple of years. In 2015 the media was saturated with stories of migration, so you may think you know this story already. But you probably don’t. This story is deeper and stranger than it initially appears, with roots that extend way back. And it isn't over. Over this series we’re going to be taking a closer look at the factors that shaped the so-called ‘crisis’. We begin by asking why do people leave in the first place? We follow a handful of them – Abdulrahim, Ebrima, Abdurrahman and Fatima – as they set out on one of the most dangerous journeys of their lives.
