Preview – Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos

Meet the Drug Lords

SAS: Who Dares Wins’ Jason Fox used to hunt cartels and drug-trafficking operations for a living but now delves unarmed into the depths of the South-American drug industry to meet smugglers, “cooks” and killers at the heart of it.

Moving on from Mexico, after his run-in with the Sinaloa Cartel, Jason travels to the birthplace of the modern narcotics industry: Colombia. He visits the port, Buenaventura, where more than a quarter of the world’s cocaine is smuggled, meeting a trafficker who is preparing to paddle £10 million worth of cocaine in a canoe to a waiting container ship, right under the noses of the authorities before finally heading to Medellin to meet Pablo Escobar’s most-trusted assassins – a man named “Popeye”.

Meet the Drug Lords – Thursday 9:00pm on Channel 4.
