Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

You can’t say that Ross Kemp likes an easy life: the former EastEnders star has carved himself out a niche as a reporter willing to embed himself in some of the world’s most trouble-scarred spots. For his latest series, he’ll be meeting criminal biker gangs in Australia, Iraqi and Syrian immigrants in Calais, and exploring South Africa’s appalling rape epidemic.

First, though, it’s a not-so-jolly jaunt to Ukraine, to meet some of the ultra-right nationalist militias defending the unstable nation’s borders. Unpalatable views and uncontrolled testosterone are on display as Kemp spends time with football hooligans now fighting pro-Russian separatists, and meets the notorious Azov battalion and other groups near the front line.
