In 2011 BBC did an audio documentary on family planning efforts and mostly focused on the Indian subcontinent.

The BBC page describes it as follows:
Quote
The world's population is due to reach seven billion people this year, and by around 2050 it could grow by yet another two billion.

Using India as an exemplar, Professor Matthew Connelly of Columbia University, New York, documents a global campaign that began with the best humanitarian ideals, but which led to authoritarian control over some of the world’s poorest citizens.

He uncovers a story of tragic mistakes and sometimes terrible human rights abuses, and shows how we will be living with the consequences for decades to come.

For those interested the three parts (1hr in total) are available at

Thank you for posting this; it is a timely reminder of the often deleterious effects of governmental actions.
