Review

We’re used to seeing Dominic Littlewood as a consumer rights champion, but in this daily series he’s tackling a variety of very different roles. He’s spending 24 hours learning some of the US’s most dangerous and demanding jobs, such as paramedic, coastguard and US marshal.

He starts, however, by training to be a guard in Randall County Jail, Texas, where his mentor is an army veteran who has completed three tours of Iraq. “Wow, it’s a tough job,” Littlewood says, expressing admiration for the men and women who work there.

Interestingly, being a prison guard isn’t the scariest prospect for him. On Wednesday he becomes a cattle rancher and faces his biggest fear… horses.

Summary

Dominic Littlewood spends 24 hours sampling some of the US's most dangerous and demanding jobs, beginning by working as a correctional officer in a Texas jail.
