Brilliant documentary series, It has pretty much everything you would want from a documentary: a bit of history, current events, action, and human interest. Ross Kemp does a fantastic job in explaining the problem in an objective, understandable way.
We follow his journey from the African coast to the oil fields in Nigeria, to the waters of Singapore and Malaysia and then back to Somalia, in his quest to learn more about the problem and meet some pirates in the modern world. He talks with politicians in the areas, the soldiers that patrol the areas, as well as the people that are harmed directly and indirectly by the problem of piracy. I appreciated the lack of interviews with the companies that are harmed by piracy, since that is information that we can get on the regular news channels.
The whole documentary has a great flow to it, slowly building up to meeting real pirates and seeing first hand how they do what they do without really doing it. To the style: he is often talking to the camera, letting the viewer know what is happening while filming the action, this gives a great sense of really being there with him and taking part, the voice over is well done as are the interviews.
If you are interested in the subject of piracy in the 21st Century, I can only recommend it.
Like a wife of a pirate says they are naughty boys.
