Since 2007 Ross Kemp has been making some of the most powerful television about British soldiers’ serving in Afghanistan on Britain’s frontline. His documentaries are un-missable. Candid and brutally honest they are the first on UK television to show what our troops are going through to win peace in this war-torn land during the toughest years of the campaign so far.
In the summer of 2007 Ross joins his father’s old regiment, 1 Royal Anglian and, for the first time, heads to Afghanistan. Ross is immediately embedded with frontline troops where for weeks at a time he lives a soldier’s life as they fight a fanatical and determined enemy. Off the battlefield he tells the stories of those who risk their lives fighting the Taliban, stories of soldiers who have lost friends in battle and the impact that a loss has on relatives back home.
Ross returns to Afghanistan in the summer of 2008, to the recently captured town of Musa Qaleh. This small yet significant town is the centre of some of the fiercest fighting in the conflict. The worst battles take place in the densely vegetated and claustrophobic terrain of the green zone. He joins 5 Scots and 1 Royal Irish on four operations as they defend the town from Taliban attack. In the final programme Ross meets the unsung heroes of this conflict, young soldiers’ who have lost limbs to mine strikes who now face an uncertain future. In the winter of 2009 Ross travels to Kajaki, a remote base in Helmand where he joins 45 Victor Company of the Royal Marines.
