    Fly-on-the-wall Bravo doc follows Thai tourist police

    Fly-on-the-wall Bravo doc follows Thai tourist police

    Bravo will follow three British ex-pats helping the Thai tourist police deal with westerners in a major series this autumn.

    Big Trouble In Tourist Thailand [working title] is an 8 x 60-minute fly-on-the-wall series by Vera Productions.

    It follows Howard, Louise and Tim, who help the police deal with holidaymakers unfamiliar with the country’s traditions, culture and rules.

    Situations range from drug busts to organised tourist scams, scorned lady-boys, violent brothel disputes, bar-room brawls, brutal murders, street robberies and sexual assaults.

    The series is shot mainly on location in the popular tourist hotspots of Koh Samui, Phuket, Bangkok, Pattaya and Chang Mai.

    One featured story is that of a 19-year-old Cumbrian girl whose two-week holiday with her boyfriend turned into a two-and-a-half month stretch after she was caught in possession of cannabis at one of the infamous Full Moon parties in Koh Phangan.

    Big Trouble in Tourist Thailand was ordered by Bravo senior commissioning editor Lucy Pilkington. Vera exec is Dean Palmer while Gavin Hill is series producer.

    holidays aint what they used to be.


    fly-on-the-wall series
    sounds more like a cockroach-in-the-basement series.

    another boost for thai tourism

    I wonder why they only mention this story. I hope they show stories like we see in the news on a regular basis, showing both sides of crime and justice in Tourist Thailand.
