Peter Nygard: the secret videos

He was the wealthy and successful Canadian behind a Winnipeg based fashion empire with operations all over the world and a palatial seaside estate in the Bahamas. But now Peter Nygard has been arrested and faces charges involving sex trafficking and racketeering, in what the FBI says was a scheme that affected "dozens of victims." He's been called Canada's Jeffery Epstein, and now more than 80 women have come forward accusing him of rape and sexual assault stretching back more than 40 years. He denies the accusations. The Fifth Estate has exclusive interviews and never before seen video footage answering the question, how did he keep it a secret for so long? That's Peter Nygard: The Secret Videos, airing on CBC Television on January 28th.
