Ross and the Extreme World team 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 fourth series, BAFTA award-winning documentary maker Ross Kemp was held up at gun point in Papua New Guinea as well as travelling to Northern Ireland, where the team looked at the state of play fifteen years after the Good Friday agreement.

Previous series 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.

Extreme World returns for Series 4 in January 2015.
