Channel 4’s hit factual thriller Hunted returns for a third series as nine British citizens turn fugitive and go on the run. Following a dramatic launch and helicopter chase in Manchester, the fugitives are pursued across the UK by an elite team of hunters, drawn from some of the world’s best investigators and led by former Scotland Yard detective Chief Peter Bleksley.
The stakes are high; if the fugitives can evade capture for 25 days they could win a share of £100,000. But they’re up against a formidable force of 30 hunters equipped with the latest ANPR technology, search dogs, drones and helicopters. The fugitives include former police firearms officer Jamie Clark, father and son team Bob and Alex Ayling, and retired college tutor Carlene Crowe. As the fugitives escape the net in Manchester, the hunters are in hot pursuit and within hours they must organise a dramatic sting on the streets of London.
