There was a series a few years ago on the telly called UK BORDER FORCE. Repeats keep popping up on my SKY TV and I just love this programme. Itís basically showing our brave border forces stopping the bogus types from gaining access to Englandís green and pleasant land. Any fans of this and what are your favourite moments? My personal favourite is when the officer is grilling some foreign guy with dodgy looking qualifications:

ďBusiness Work? Youíre telling me that thereís a module on a post-graduate degree called Business Work?Ē

He says it in such a way that I canít help do a lol every time I see it.

Does it show them smuggling guns and drugs too? That would be more exciting.

I watched it sometimes. There is similar show including
Australian border control.

If you like that style of shows, try VICE channel.
Its not about border control, but shows like "Hate your neighbour" are really good.

I used to watch the Australian one. I was always interested in what they were trying to smuggle in, and how.
