Synopsis

Triple bill of documentary series following Ross Kemp in war-torn Afghanistan. In 'Ross Kemp in Afghanistan' the actor travels with his father's old regiment to Helmand Province to experience firsthand the fight against the Taliban. Filmed during the summer of 2007, the series shows in detail what life is like for the British forces and pulls no punches in its depiction of war and the effect it has on families back at home. In 'Return to Afghanistan' Kemp is embedded with British troops defending the town of Musa Qaleh from frequent and fierce Taliban attacks. As the fighting continues, away from the battle Kemp takes time to find out from the soldiers what they actually think about the enemy, their life in the army, and the hardships modern warfare throws their way. In 'Back on the Front Line' Kemp returns to the war-torn country ten years after 9/11 to investigate how the situation has developed. Travelling with Whiskey Company 45 Commando Royal Marines and encountering many dangers along the way, he explores what the future holds with the plan to remove soldiers in 2014.
