Director Steven Cantor introduces this video profiling on the work of the bouncer. He looks at their role in nightclubs, private parties, corporate events and other such high profile functions where security is paramount. He also looks into the work life of a bouncer, both in London and in New York, with help from the Northampton training school for 'doormen'. Cantor uses legendary doorman, the late great Lenny 'The Guv'nor' McLean, as his subject. McLean was regarded as the 'hardest man in Britain' with over 20,000 fights to his credit.
