Over-population in Manila

Channel 4's Unreported World goes to Manila for this Friday's film.  Manila, the capital of the Phillipines, is one of the world's most overpopulated cities.  Maternity wards, schools and graveyards are all struggling to cope. Jenny Kleeman finds that women often have eight or even more children and that the government does not promote contraception for fear of losing the votes of Catholics.
