#3 - Somalia

Season 1 - Episode 1 - Aired 6/8/2009

Ross Kemp is off the coast of Somalia on the trail of modern-day Blackbeards, who are rather more camera shy. The professional tough guy swaps sunglasses for regulation mushroom helmet and hops aboard HMS Northumberland, the first Royal Navy ship to patrol for pirates since 1816. He soon discovers that it's like looking for a needle in a haystack and, despite interesting tete-a-tetes with marines, Kemp is clearly longing for some real drama.
