In these two hard-hitting, emotional and revealing programmes, Ross Kemp offers a fascinating insight into life on both sides of the divided Middle East. Ross Kemp follows up his Bafta-nominated programmes on Helmand and Kenya - by journeying to the Middle East where the bitter conflict has cost tens of thousands of lives and forced millions to live in fear and misery. Ross visits Gaza one year on from Operation Cast Lead, a massive Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip that saw as many as 1,400 Palestinians die, thousands of homes destroyed, and much of Gaza's infrastructure obliterated. He then travels to Israel and discovers a country divided, one that is surrounded by enemies and living under the constant fear of rocket attacks and suicide bombs from groups dedicated to its destruction. Given extraordinary and unprecedented access to those committed to the conflict and the communities caught in the crossfire, Ross Kemp meets tunnel smugglers, suicide bombers, West Bank settlers, families who have lost children - as well as journalists who have followed the evolving conflict and politicians trying to end the suffering and violence through diplomacy.
