Ross Kemp Extreme World

Ross and the Extreme World team continue to gain extraordinary and unparalleled access to the places and people caught up in some of the most important global issues of our time in the critically-acclaimed factual series Ross Kemp: Extreme World.

Consistently producing ground-breaking programmes, this strand of documentary films continues to challenge and inform.

In the third series, BAFTA award-winning documentary maker Ross Kemp travelled to India where he investigated India's shameful secret; a sex-trafficking industry where hundreds-of-thousands of girls and young women go missing every year and are forced into a life of prostitution in India's major cities.

In Papua New Guinea, Ross is held-up at gunpoint, but instead of submitting to his hijackers he manages to turn the situation around and interview his potential captors in an extraordinary exchange which reveals why this ex-British colony is now one of the most violent countries on the planet.

And in Northern Ireland, Ross looks at the state of play fifteen years after the Good Friday agreement, visiting communities, meeting with the people who live in them and speaking with loyalists, republicans and the police as he explores the issues in one of Britain's most divided societies.

In Rio de Janeiro, a city trying to clean up its image ahead of the football World Cup and the next Olympic Games, Ross gained access into the secretive underworld of Rio's favelas to make a film about the world's worst crack-cocaine epidemic that is currently sweeping through Brazil.

In this third series, Ross also travels to Lebanon to investigate the impact the civil war in Syria is having on the neighbouring country, and he explores the extremes of society in Las Vegas 

Previous Series

Previous programmes have seen Ross infiltrate Venezuela's lawless prisons to lift the lid on Chavez's controversial regime, and in the Congo, Ross exposed the militia's responsible for an epidemic of sexual violence against women. While other broadcasters were banned from Pakistan, Ross gained entry, at risk to himself and the production team, to tell the extraordinary story of the battle for Karachi.

Closer to home, Ross won praise for his hard-hitting documentary on the plight of Glasgow's homeless. Captivating customers and critics alike, plaudits have included the Daily Telegraph stating Ross Kemp tackles compellingly edgy subjects; whilst The Times said you cant argue with the outstanding access Kemp gets. Shockingly intimate.
