All of our episodes drop reporter Hamish MacDonald into extreme environments with extraordinary people around the world. He's there to discover and experience the unexpected truths behind the stories we thought we already knew. He'll take a global story, then flip the story up-side-down and make it entertaining, relevant and surprising. A journalist's job is to unearth the facts, and whilst the truth is certainly always out there, the truth is also surprising, wonderful, alarming and often, stranger than fiction. 

Russia's Paris Hilton

Hamish chases Ksenia Sobchak, the wild-child daughter of well-connected parents and one of Russia’s most famous faces, from London’s poshest post codes to the snow-blanketed streets of gilded Moscow. This blonde bombshell is best known for posing nude in Russian Playboy and hosting the country’s steamy Big Brother clone, but since major anti-government protests erupted in 2011, she has traded in reality TV-stardom for political journalism and in the process has become the face of the Russian opposition.

Soldiers Of Fortune

Hamish heads to the Pol’ana Mountains in Slovakia, to take part in one of the many new international “close protection security” schools that have opened during this past ten years of continual war. Along with learning to use an AK-47 and drive an armoured vehicle, he meets a young Aussie called Ben, who after 10 years of service in the Army, desperately wants work on what they call ‘the Circuit’ – war zones of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Mozambique. Some are even taking pay cuts to get to the ‘excitement’ of Syria.
