About

With high production values and dynamic storytelling, this new series is a must-see for anyone trying to make sense of our fast-changing world.

Ross once again gains extraordinary access to places and people as he explores six neglected corners of the globe to reveal untold stories of suffering, crime and poverty and to confront those responsible.

Over the course of the series, he puts himself in precarious situations in the pursuit of the truth, and discovers some chilling realities.

In Colombia, he investigates the deadly drug trade that's undermining peace while, in Mozambique, he dives deep into the violent world of animal poaching.

He also examines the heroin addiction epidemic in India's Punjab and the disaffected North African migrant population in a Paris suburb that is turning to radical Islam. Ross also travels to the frontline in Syria (also available as a 90' special) to witness the cataclysmic effects of ISIS presence.
