Documentary Series

The men in this new series are tough, brutal and ruthless. Some have spent their lives in the criminal underworld; others have spent a lifetime in pursuit of criminals. None of them are the sort of people you would cross. From unlicensed boxing champions to SAS soldiers to underworld crime bosses and elite undercover police, this documentary series finds out what makes them tick.

In each episode Danny meets a new hard man – by spending time with each man in his own domain, he gets immersed in their world. Danny asks tough questions that push their boundaries – about the pain they may have caused others, the impact of their behaviour on their own friends and families and invites them to consider the consequences of their actions in a way they may never have been asked to do so before.

EPISODE ONE: This week Danny meets gangster Stephen French who made his fortune robbing the rich (he didn’t give it to the poor). The ‘rich’ he chose to target were drug dealers. In SAS-style swoops, French raided their fortified mansions and tortured them with horrifying violence until they paid up. He called it taxation.
