Series 2, Episode 2

South Africa's ferocious Number gang thrives in the country's overcrowded prisons. Nowhere is their power more potent than Cape Town's Pollsmoor High Security Prison where gang members subject new arrivals to violent attacks and gang rapes as part of their brutal initiations. On leaving prison many gang members inhabit the desolate Cape Flats region (or Cape of Fear as it is also known due to the reign of terror that the gang exercises over the local population). Statistically it is the most dangerous place to live in South Africa. With alcoholism rampant in the area (possibly as a result of its proximity to the nearby wine growing region), the fierce-some Number gang is heavily involved in drug dealing, extortion and prostitution.

Ross uncovers the extent to which the Nazi, or National Socialist, groups are gaining power in Russia: it would seem that at best the police turn a blind eye to racism, at worse actively endorse it.

Ross joins one Neo Nazi group during their training and through a series of tests -which include him being set on fire - he gains their trust. They invite him back to their secret headquarters where he meets some seriously disturbing individuals and uncovers the heart of their violent organisation.
