In this groundbreaking factual thriller for British television, 14 British citizens are given fugitive status and go on the run. For up to 28 days they must evade capture from some of the world's best investigators. Leading the hunt is Chief Brett Lovegrove, former Head of Counter Terrorism for City of London Police, who led their response to the 7/7 bombings. He runs a team of 30 hunters carefully selected from law enforcement, military intelligence, cyber analysis, online profiling and human tracking. In episode four, we meet newlyweds Adam and Emma Channell (pictured above) who want one last adventure before they begin a family. Their plan is to head off grid in some of Britain's most remote rural areas - the Yorkshire Dales and deepest Wales, but as paranoia kicks in and they start to jump at every car that passes, the married couple finds it increasingly difficult to cope with the pressure. Also on the run is Freddie Young, a 21-year-old teaching assistant from Essex, accompanied by his mother-in-law Jacqui Omer, who insisted on coming along as she's convinced Freddie can't cope on his own. Their plan is to stay fairly close to home and lay low in a caravan park on the coast. Meanwhile Emily Dredge is now finding the stress of being hunted and being apart from her baby Ernest almost unbearable. After a high-speed getaway on the back of a motorbike she decides to chance a visit home to see her son, but as the hunters have her family under round the clock surveillance, could this be her final mistake?
