Taking the Flak

Episode 1: Bigfooting

Duration: 1 hour

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC One Wales

A small African war suddenly becomes global news and a team of BBC journalists arrives in the country of Karibu, ready to cover the conflict for 'the Ten' back home. But football-mad boy soldiers, corrupt car dealers, intestinal discomfort, landmines, old flames and colossal egos all get in the way. There is definitely a story to tell, but who will get to tell it?

With Martin Jarvis, Doon Mackichan, Lloyd Owen, Bruce Mackinnon, Joanna Brookes, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Lydia Gitachu and Mackenzie Crook; and Bill Turnbull, Sian Williams and George Alagiah as themselves. Show less
