Torture, sexual abuse, cruelty - children and adults are in danger all over the world, often because no-one is prepared to speak on their behalf. Occasional voices do cry out - and, for quarter of a century, one of the strongest has been that of Danny Smith. In 1981, he set out to free seven people, trapped in Cold War Moscow, but he didn't stop there. From the sleazy streets of the Philippines, via the jungles of Burma and the dying rooms of China, to the heat of Uganda, Danny has uncovered sexual abuse, poverty, persecution, trafficking, and child sacrifice. He has worked tirelessly alongside undercover reporters for the BBC, ITV, and other international media outlets; campaigned to change laws in the UK and elsewhere; and rescued children from a lifetime of prostitution in India. Allies in his battles have included George and Olivia Harrison, Billy Connolly, journalists, politicians, world leaders, and thousands of ordinary people who believed him when he said that something could be done. This is Danny Smith's story of over twenty-five years of making a noise.
