Noughts + Crosses

An adaptation of book one of Malorie Blackman's award-winning young adult series Noughts & Crosses, a gripping story of first love in a dangerous, alternate world where prejudice divides society.

Over 700 years ago the Aprican Empire invaded Europe. Aprica colonised the continent and reached as far as Albion. Albion has been under Aprican rule ever since.

Noughts + Crosses follows two young people, Sephy and Callum, who are divided by their colour but united by love. Sephy (South African newcomer Masali Baduza) is a Cross, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician.

Callum is a Nought, a white member of the underclass. The two have been friends since early childhood, but their relationship grows ever more complicated as they come of age.

It's the story of two families separated by power and prejudice but forever entwined by fate.

Bonnie Mbuli plays Sephy's mother Jasmine. The cast also features British musician Stormzy as newspaper editor Kolawale.

To Catch a Smuggler

124-million people enter the U.S. through the nation's airports each year. It's a nonstop human tidal wave and hidden amongst them are an endless stream of contraband and ill intentions.

Defending the borders are the vigilant men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, whose agencies make up a three-tiered defence of America's airports.

Using every tool available to them, DHS will stop at nothing to catch a smuggler.

In the series premiere, "JFK Airport": Fraudulent visas. Narcotics mules. Stolen art. Human trafficking. Illegal citrus. It's all part of a day's work at JFK Airport.

Take an inside look at the operations of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and Homeland Security Investigations special agents at the busiest international airport in the USA.
