Channel 4 Documentary

On Tuesday 2 April 2024 at 11.50pm, Channel 4 presents a gripping documentary called “The Rise and Fall of Pablo Escobar,” delving into the life and crimes of one of history’s most notorious drug lords. This true crime documentary sheds light on the story of Pablo Escobar, the leader of the Medellin Cartel in Colombia.

During the 1980s, Escobar built an empire worth an estimated $30 billion through his involvement in cocaine production and distribution. As he amassed immense wealth and power, he left behind a trail of destruction that claimed thousands of lives.

The rise to prominence for this infamous figure was marred by violence, corruption, and intimidation. In order to gain support from the impoverished population, Escobar funded various social programs. However, his reign was also marked by ruthlessness as he ordered countless murders to eliminate anyone who posed a threat to his operations.

Escobar’s criminal activities attracted global attention and drew the ire of law enforcement agencies worldwide. Aware that authorities were closing in on him, he spent years evading capture until finally meeting his end in a fatal shootout with Colombian government forces in 1993.

His downfall not only signified the end of an era but also served as a powerful message to other drug lords about the potential consequences they could face. The Medellin Cartel disbanded following Escobar’s death as its remaining members scattered.

Tune in to Channel 4 on Tuesday 2 April 2024 at 11.50pm for an insightful look into “The Rise and Fall of Pablo Escobar” as told by DEA agents involved in bringing him down.
