France: Inside the Drugs Network

This hard-hitting investigation goes to the very centre of organized crime by infiltrating a network of drug traffickers over a two year period. Obtaining the traffickers confidence was a long and risky process in a world where ‘journalist’ is practically a synonym for ‘police’. Our camera is right at the heart of the action when the go-fasters (drug-traffickers who zoom around Europe in ostentatious convoys) smuggle drugs. We also manage to capture the violent reality of the black market in the French suburbs.
