Investigative journalist Nicola Tallant is coming to the Waterfront Studio, Belfast on 27 April 2024!
Nicola Tallant brings to life the story of Ireland's very own narcos and how they hit the big time on the international stage.
We follow the deals, the successes and the catastrophic mishaps as we trace the trail of white lines from the jungle labs of South America to our own Wild West drug frontier.
