Cocaine, one of the most widely used drugs in Britain today. In this series, we meet the normal people who are driving that demand and supplying the product. From 6th form school dealers, to couples who prefer a night in with a gram of cocaine, to a bottle of wine and we uncover a world where cocaine is part of the everyday routine.

With availability throughout the country increasing all the time, thanks to online dark web orders and dealers setting up shop in regional towns, how will the authorities keep control of the critical situation?
 

Episode 3

In this final episode we examine how uncontrollable smuggling is feeding Britons addiction and meet the people who are clearing up the mess left behind when cocaine takes over. We start with our borders. The NSA are constantly on the lookout to thwart new and invite ways of getting cocaine into the country. As we see when we meet Maggie at a midlands border force hub no item it too big or too small to be check for contraband.

Episode 2

We start in a residential area of London where two 6th formers are making plans for the weekend. Soon the talk of parties and mock exams takes a different turn and we learn that they are providing the 6th form house party scene with cocaine bought from the dark web. They see this as a more sociable way of making money than getting a part-time job.

Episode 1

Cocaine in Britain is usually seen through the lens of a tabloid celebrity exposé or a major import bust, but rarely do we get to see into the lives of the users who drive the demand or the intricate network or seemingly normal people who provide the complex distribution system. Episode One does exactly that. We start in the kitchen of an executive family home in the Midlands to find Grant, a cocaine wholesaler, as he’s about to turn 9 kilos into 22.5 kilos thanks to some glucose powder.
