Series in which British workers are challenged to do their job under some of the toughest conditions in the world.

[edit] Paramedic

Angie Dymott, a paramedic from Cardiff, arrives in Guatemala City - a place with one of the highest violent crime rates in the world, where large areas are ruled by vicious street gangs. Over two weeks, she lives and works with the ambulance workers answering regular calls to the scenes of gangland killings and drive-by shootings.

[edit] Bus Driver

London bus driver Josh West heads to Manila, the capital of the Philippines and the most densely populated city on Earth. Josh will be driving a Jeepney, a colourfully decorated, adapted jeep which has no power steering, dodgy lights and an uncomfortable seat. His host is Rogelio Castro and together they brave the chaos of the streets. It's a hair-raising and often hilarious ride, but Josh also learns about the incredible over-crowding and devastating poverty of Manila. He forms a strong bond with Rogelio and is moved by the daily struggle of an ordinary Filipino working to feed his family. Josh returns a changed man, aware that all the separates his life from Rogelio's is the country he happened to be born in.

[edit] Midwife

Midwife Suzanne Saunders-Blundell abandons the high tech maternity unit at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield to work in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia in West Africa. This is the third poorest country on earth, where one in twelve women dies in childbirth. Suzanne, a fan of natural child birth back in Britain, soon learns that there is little time for such luxuries at the Redemption Hospital. On her first day she has to deal with a traumatic still birth and during her stay a young woman she has helped to care for dies in front of her. Yet by the end of her stay Suzanne is amazed and inspired by the strength of the Liberian midwives she lives and works with, who in turn are keen to learn from her.
