Ross Kemp in Afghanistan

Ross Kemp accompanies frontline troops in Helmand province in Afghanistan. Kemp secured access to Afghanistan through his father’s connections to his old regiment, and through a brigadier who happened to have gone to school with one of the programme’s makers. ‘I knew how dangerous it was,’ says Kemp, ‘but the CO said we could film training – and that if I was good enough, I could go out on deployment.’
