Ric Esther Bienstock
This is the most dramatic of the relatively recent investigations of this type. Director Bienstock and a documentary film crew infiltrated the sex trafficking trade between the Ukraine and Turkey. Her approach, like W.T. Stead's, was to infiltrate the trafficking source to underove its mechanisms. In one segment, her Russian-speaking producer, Felix Golubev, posed as a buyer (with a hidden camera in his shirt) and got an insider's look at how the system functioned. In another segment, the crew's hidden camera followed a trafficker as she made her way through Turkish customs and into Istanbul's Russian district, where she traded the women she had brought into the country.
Cynthia McFadden

ABC News, helped by Global Survival Network, investigated sex trafficking in Israel, produing undercover videos that documented the sale of Russian women to israeli pimps in Tel Aviv. ABC paired the footage with reporter Cynthia McFadden's interviews with an official from the Israeli Ministry of the Interior and an Israeli trafficker, who described the details of the girls' captivity. At the end of the broadcast, Diane Sawyer announced that the trafficker had been arrested for running a brothel but spent only a day in jail before the charges were dropped.
