Maximum Security, coming to BBC One on the 29 of August, will see presenter Dom Littlewood travel across the UK to explore the secrets of some of Britain’s most secure institutions, businesses and buildings.

Apart from exclusive behind-the-scenes access to top-security locations, Dom and his team of experts will also provide viewers with useful tips on how to make their own homes and other valuables safe with the help of the latest technology. Additionally, the series will hear first-hand testimonies from victims of crime, and give valuable insight into how they have mitigated against it happening again.

Dom will shadow UK Border Force teams in Dover, where he will learn more about their work and how they ensure nothing illegal crosses the UK border. Throughout the series, audiences will discover how drug hauls and smuggling are handled at the Channel, and how the force patrols the ferry traffic.

Elsewhere in the series, Dom finds out what it takes to make Britain’s largest exhibition and stadium venues safe when hosting high-profile concerts and sporting events. He will also be learning how the UK’s busiest airport, Heathrow, operates its passport control and security checks.

Dom says: “Criminals are cunning, but luckily there is some amazing technology as well as simple tricks on how to make their lives harder. In Maximum Security, viewers can learn from top professionals in the security industry, and visit amazing locations which normally remain hidden.

“I am thrilled to be working on such an informative and educational show that provides audiences with practical tips to keep themselves safe and secure in their own homes.”

Acting Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, Lindsay Bradbury says: “Maximum Security doesn’t only bring entertainment, it takes viewers behind the scenes to normally inaccessible locations, providing practical tips which they can use in their day-to-day lives to be more secure. The programme reflects Daytime’s commitment to educate and inform its audiences perfectly.”

Juliet Rice, Creative Director Factual Entertainment, BBC Studios Bristol and Cardiff says: “It has been both eye-opening and reassuring to gain such privileged access to some of the UK’s most secure businesses and institutions, and see how they are keeping us all safe.”
