Innocence Lost, the infotainment documentary series about child labourers, was very well received when it was first broadcasted on Channel U in early 2016. Viewers found it to be “one of the best shows on Singapore TV”. Many were touched by the stories and impressed by the hosts.
Pure Talents veteran host Danny Yeo (Yang Junwei) returns as the anchor host for Innocence Lost Season 2.
The pilot episode in Philippines is about young charcoal porters. Danny was so affected and moved by the children that he broke down on camera when talking about their hardship and sufferings – meek little bodies having to carry loads that are double their physical weight and running downhill on a treacherous mountain with big stones. Danny feared that the children might fall down and hurt themselves badly. Our hearts go out to these two kids – Chris John and Jomari – at Real Quezon.
