Visiting Thailand?

LONDON: The autumn schedule on Bravo U.K. will be led by the new eight-part documentary series Big Trouble in Tourist Thailand, launching on the male-skewing channel on September 7.

Slated in a 10 p.m. slot, the original commission promises unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to Thailand's tourist police force—those charged with policing Westerners unfamiliar with the country's customs and laws.

The show follows three specially recruited British expats who are part of the force. The show, filmed in tourist hotspots like Phuket, Bangkok, Pattaya and Chang Mai, features previously unseen rescue scenes following the crash of a Bangkok Airways crash in Koh Samui, as well as other incidents involving tourists in Thailand.

In addition to following the Tourist Police, the series features the Royal Navy Military Police, the British Consulate, SWAT teams and Thai Emergency Services.

Daniela Neumann, the director of programming for Virgin1, noted: "This show is a powerful reminder of the hidden dangers and high drama that happens in what is one of the U.K.'s favorite dream holiday hotspots.

In a British first, Bravo cameras will allow viewers an unprecedented and hard hitting insight into the inner workings of the Thai authorities, the Brits that are working for them, and the harsh reality of breaking the law there.’

The series is being produced by Vera Productions, which filmed the Tourism Police over the course of 15 weeks.
