Zaatari is no ordinary city. It's a refugee camp in Jordan, and home to some 80,000 Syrians who have fled the bombs and bullets of Syria's civil war. What was once a temporary camp has now become a city the size of a small country town. This incredible documentary gets beneath this surprising metropolis, a place of huge logistical challenges and extraordinary human stories. Presenters Anita Rani, Dr Javid Abdelmoneim and hostile-environment expert Ben Timberlake immerse themselves in the life of the camp, reporting from behind the scenes and meeting the families who call Zaatari home.
