We are back, once again! A very warm welcome to the new recent wave of subscribers — welcome to the club. We rely heavily on word of mouth, so we appreciate anyone and everyone spreading the love and recommending their friends.

This week we bring you: the story of Kalief Browder — an innocent man who found himself locked up on Ryker’s Island; a new Channel 4 series Escape, where mechanical engineers put their skills to the test to make their way out of deeply challenging situations; and a Netflix Original documentary uncovering just how difficult it is to leave the Hasidic community.

Let’s go.

Time: The Kalief Browder Story ★★★★
The moving story of Kalief Browder, a teenager who was incarcerated in New York’s infamous Ryker’s Island prison, where he served 3 years without conviction. (Series)

Escape ★★★★
An exhilarating series following several crack teams comprising of a handful of engineers, led by ex Special Forces, Ant Middleton. Dropped into a simulated crash site, in anywhere from the desert to a tropical swamp, they must salvage what they can from the wreckage and build a vehicle strong enough to escape the treacherous environment, surviving on limited supplies. (47 mins)

Watch Now on 4OD

One of Us ★★★★
A Netflix Original documentary exploring the reality behind the closed doors of New York’s ultra orthodox Jewish community. Riddled with cases of abuse, the penalty for leaving can cost you your family. (95 mins)
