Filming once again broke in April 2016, due to Kemp filming scenes for his brief return to EastEnders. Filming on the series finished in May 2016. (en)

  • Ross visits a bordertown on the edge of the Mexico–US border, where more than 1,000 migrants attempt to get into the United States everyday. He patrols with border officials as they hunt for a group of migrants attempting to cross the border in the desert, and asks if a 2,000 mile long wall will ever be the answer to prevent increasing migration.
  • Ross travels to the Congo to investigate the ongoing war over minerals. He interviews women who have suffered horrific torture at the hands of the Hutus, and speaks with a leading doctor who set up a hospital and refuge ten years ago for the victims of such abuse. He also travels to a Coltan mine to look at the harship suffered by mine workers.
  • Ross takes a look at the growing problem of crack addiction in some of Rio's poorest slums, involving children as young as eleven years old, as well as the sale of illegal arms and the increasing number of gangs operating on the streets, just as the country prepares to take on both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games.
  • Ross investigates the mass production of Cocaine in the poorest parts of Colombia, meeting with members of rival factions FARC and the Paramilitaries to find out how the drugs trade has united the deadliest of rivals. He visits a private Cocaine production plant and finds out just how much the natives rely on drug production to survive.
  • Ross looks at the ever increasing problem of Heroin in inner-city Chicago, meeting with both dealers and users, and investigating how ordinary working-class people become hooked on one of the most addictive drugs known to man. He also visits a chop-house, and speaks with a crime boss who is responsible for looking after the West Side.
  • Ross travels to Mozambique to investigate the ever-increasing trade of Ivory. He meets with a group of illegal salesman to find out just how easy the purchase of Ivory actually is, before taking a road trip into the Neassa reserve with a group of rangers enlisted with the specific task of protecting the remaining Elephant population from attack.
  • Ross travels to the self-appointed 'murder capital' of the world, Juarez, where on average, nine murders take place on a daily basis. He speaks with the local mayor who has played an integral part in dispatching 11,000 police officers and a further 7,500 soldiers onto the streets to control the level of violence, which is increasing on a daily basis.
  • Ross travels to Haiti in the wake of an extreme earthquake, which measured 7.7 on the ritcher scale, to find out how the natives of the country are coming in the aftermath. He visits a PDP camp where an outbreak of Cholera has caused multiple deaths, and speaks with former presidential candidate Wyclef as presidential voting gets underway.
  • Ross travels across Australia with various members of 1% motorcycle groups, whose daily life - and ultimately, their freedom - is being placed under threat by new laws implemented by the Australian government in the light of well documented outbreaks of violence. He meets with a chief of police to find out if these laws can be truly justified.
  • Ross travels to India to investigate the ever-popular sex trade, where girls as young as nine are being trafficked from some of the country's poorest slums to the richest cities. He meets up with a detective who is trying to combat the problem of prostitution, and speaks with a trafficker who claims to have murdered more than 400 young women.
  • Ross investigates the increasing problem of homelessness and gambling addiction in America's tourist capital, speaking with families who have made their home in one of the many flood tunnels built underneath the capital's streets. Later, he speaks to those who engage in the ever-growing trend of begging for money in order to buy heroin.
  • Ross travels to the Murder capital of the world, where more than four murders per principal are committed each day. He undertakes the 1,500 mile journey travelled by more than 1,200 migrants every day, who attempt to reach the American border to escape violent gangs and bandits, whose sole aim is to rob, assault and kidnap vulnerable victims.
  • Ross speaks with Mongolian nationalists who are enthralled in the ongoing fight to prevent rich Chinese businessman from stealing all of their country's remaining wealth. He spends a day with a group of coal miners forced to work in appalling conditions, as well as meeting a group of homeless herdsmen who are reduced to living on a landfill site.
  • Ross visits the Rape capital of the world, where it is estimated that over 50% of women have been raped at least once in their lifetime, and spends time in a towncipal where gangs view rape as a hobby. He speaks with ministers and campaigners fighting for justice for the victims, and learns that 85% of children under 12 have witnessed a rape.
  • Ross investigates the increasing tension between Pro-Russian Sepratists and the Ukrainian Nationalists as Russia threatens a full scale invasion of the country. He heads to the frontline to speak with the Azov Battalion, a unit hailed as heroes in their homeland for fighting Russian snipers without assistance from the Government or Ukrainian Army.
  • Ross travels across Syria and Iraq to discover the impact that ISIS has caused on the day-to-day lives of the country's natives. He heads out onto the frontline with a group of Kurds known as the YPG and YPJ, who despite being untrained and under-funded, have gained more ground on ISIS than any other armed militia since their invasion.
  • A summarised version of 'The Fight Against ISIS', featuring footage shot in Syria only. This version also features footage not featured in the original broadcast.
  • Ross investigates the ever increasing problem of migration in camps just outside the port of Calais, where more than 10,500 people attempted to enter the UK illegally over the course of six months in 2014. He meets with the UK border force, and learns of the many ways and means that migrants adopt in order to attempt to avoid detection.
