Review

In the first episode of this gritty returning series, Ross Kemp (he was a soap star once, remember?) is in Karachi, where ethnic differences are being exploited by political parties and criminal gangs to create a lethal muddle of extortion, torture, kidnap and killings. And from what Kemp experiences in the notorious Lyari district, little seems set to change. It’s grimly compelling, and very sad: even volunteer paramedics face attack when collecting bodies.

Summary

Award-winning series reporting from some of the most dangerous places on Earth, observing conflicts first-hand. The actor and his team find themselves caught in the crossfire as they witness the battle for Karachi in Pakistan.
