In the 1980s, Liverpool became the epicentre of a drugs boom that was to change Britain forever. With unprecedented access to some of the biggest players, this is the story of how drugs went mainstream and dealing became a multi-billion pound business

  • How heroin and its availability in the ‘80s changed life for the criminal underworld and for communities where it was rife. The director interviews all sides of the trade – a smuggler, detectives and customs officers, a journalist, drugs counsellors and an addict.
  • Moving in to the late ‘80s, the drugs revolution sparked by the arrival of ecstasy and how dealers, club bouncers and their bosses fought it out to gain control of a very lucrative market
  • In the ‘90s Liverpool’s Narcos set up direct contact with Colombian cartels to flood the UK with cocaine, becoming multi-millionaires in the process. The focus is Curtis Warren and on Stephen Mee, described by the police as kingpin Warren’s second in command.
