Hell's angels

Close-mouthed brotherhood: Hells Angels. (NRK)
"The Brotherhood" presented by the Norvegian NRK is an in-depth TV and web report on the Hells Angels and their criminal activities. The website provides dozens of articles, an interactive map, video shorts and three TV documentaries that have been broadcast in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland so far. NRK's "Brennpunkt" (focus) editors aimed at unveiling the mafia structure of the motorcycle gang and its criminal activities, from robbery to bombing and murder.

The Hells Angels are a close-mouthed organisation, and it took years of meticulous research to do both the TV serial and the website. A risky task: "Web developer will remain anonymous due to security", the festival catalogue says. Investigative journalism at its best.
