Reggie Yates: Life & Death In Chicago

Reggie Yates, award-winning documentarian best known for his work as a BBC radio and television presenter, travels to Chicago in his latest documentary to investigate gun violence and crime.

In 2015 Chicago saw a shocking 468 murders with many of the victims young African-American men. Chicago's murder rate has soared by 72% in 2016 with shootings up more than 88%.

So, who is to blame? Reggie hears first-hand the accusations of police brutality, but after attending the aftermath of a shooting, and funeral of a young black man, he comes to realise an even bigger problem is the majority of killings are perpetrated by young black men living in Chicago’s poorest neighbourhoods.
