Hunted is a British reality television programme on Channel 4 where contestants, known as "fugitives", attempt to evade capture by a group of former police and intelligence officers, the "hunters", for 25 days. The first series ran for six episodes in September–October 2015, and the programme returned on 22 September 2016 for a six-episode second series with 10 new fugitives going on the run to be in with a chance to win a share of a £100,000 prize.[1] The show was renewed for a third series in March 2017, as well as a "Celebrity Edition" in support of the charity Stand Up to Cancer.[2][3] The third series began airing on 4 January 2018. The third series Celebrity Edition has been nominated for a BAFTA 2018 television award in the "Reality and Constructed Factual" category[4].

The second series of Celebrity Hunted began airing on 16 October 2018 and was won by dancer AJ Pritchard and politician Johnny Mercer on 13 November 2018. The fourth regular series of Hunted began airing on 10 January 2019 for a six-episode run ending on 14 February 2019, on the same day as the fourth series launch Channel 4 confirmed that applications for the fifth series of Hunted were open.

Description[edit]

A group of civilians, known as "fugitives", are willingly sent on the run from a team of former police and intelligence professionals, known as "hunters", for 28 days (25 days in Series 3). The fugitives must remain in mainland Great Britain; no fugitive in any series has left the mainland to travel to other UK islands, with the exception of Spencer Matthews and Jamie Laing in the celebrity edition of the programme, who traveled to the Isle of Wight.

Where possible, the hunters try to use the same methods of surveillance employed by the state, including open-source intelligence ("OSINT"), cyber-expertise, and interrogating friends and family. When the Hunters do not legally have access to those powers, such as CCTV and ANPR, the powers are replicated for the show.[5]

Hunted (2015–present)[edit]

Series 1 (2015)[edit]

14 civilian contestants (billed as "fugitives" during the show's run) attempted to avoid a team of former police and intelligence officers for 28 days armed with replicated powers of the state. During their time on the run the fugitives are not allowed to leave mainland Britain, and they give permission to be tracked as if the state were tracking them using methods that the state may use, such as their phones being monitored, their houses searched, their electronic devices analysed, etc. Each fugitive was also given a bank account containing £450.

The contestants still at large on day 28 were required to meet at a secret 'extraction point', Fairoaks Airport in Surrey.

The series was filmed between 4 May 2015 and 31 May 2015.

Hunters[edit]

The team of 30 specialists includes former and serving police and intelligence personnel, an ex CIA agent and cyber intelligence experts, who use the fugitives' online footprints to research and hunt them. The team has access to replicated powers of the state, including CCTV and ANPR. Before starting, all the fugitives gave permission to be tracked in the same way as the state might track a fugitive - their cash cards and phones are monitored, their houses searched and their friends and family questioned. The hunters also use media campaigns to recruit the general public into helping them, offering financial incentives.[6] The team is split into two parts: (i) a team of operatives in the field who are in vehicles across the UK, on standby to follow orders from Hunted HQ to head to a particular location to follow up leads on fugitives' whereabouts or to question their friends and family; and (ii) a team in the Hunted HQ to gather Intelligence, which they then distribute to field teams.

Series 2 (2016)[edit]

The programme returned on 22 September 2016 for a six-episode second series. Filmed in May 2016,[9] ten new fugitives went on the run, leaving from a location in Birmingham for a chance to win a share of a £100,000 prize.[1] Similar to series 1, the fugitives could take with them anything they were able to carry, given a bank account (this time containing £250) and told not to leave mainland Britain. Each fugitive had with them an embedded camera operator to capture their every move. 30 minutes after they are sent off, the team of hunters were given their full details, along with aerial footage of the 'escape'.

The contestants still at large on day 28 needed to reach a secret 'extraction point' on the River Thames at the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.[10]

Notable events[edit]

In episode 4, the hunters captured a decoy sent by Nick Cummings at a leisure centre in Taunton, Somerset, while he is 120 miles away in Tring, Hertfordshire. Madu and Ayo split up after an argument in the same episode.

Hunters[edit]

This series saw a slightly larger team, as the hunters were joined by an investigative psychologist and another former member of British intelligence. The hunters were also equipped with sniffer dogs, helicopters and drones.

The information assurance company, NCC Group, provided the cyber-expertise for the show.[14]

Series 3 (2018)[edit]

In March 2017, the series was renewed by Channel 4 for a third series to air in 2018.[3] On 17 October 2017 (during Celebrity Hunted), Peter Bleksley confirmed on Twitter that the series would begin airing on 4 January 2018.[15] The fugitives were announced on 31 December 2017 on Hunted's Twitter account. It was also announced that the series would run for only 25 days instead of the previous 28 days. To start their time on the run, the fugitives were driven in the back of a van and dropped off in Manchester city centre.

Notable events[edit]

In episode 3, Sandra and Mella accepted a lift from a 'ghost agent' deployed by the hunters which led to their capture.

In episode 4, father and son duo, Alex and Bob Ayling decided to split up in order to even their chances of winning, and to encourage Alex who was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome to become more confident in himself.

In episode 5, the hunters went to Dan and Joe's hometown in Preston to interrogate Dan's wife. They found video recordings of Dan reading bedtime stories to his children, which they used to provoke Dan by making up a bedtime story of their own about him and posting it on social media. However, Dan and Joe retaliated this by purposely livestreaming a gig they performed at a pub in Lancashire on Facebook, knowing that the hunters would see. The hunters risked their chances by heading to the pub, only to miss Dan and Joe who narrowly managed escape them in episode 6. It is later revealed after the series that there was an unseen footage on Youtube of Dan and Joe responding to the hunter's bedtime story while they were on the run[16].

Extraction[edit]

The contestants still at large on day 22 were given a USB flash drive containing details about the extraction point. To view the contents of the USB stick, Dan and Joe went to an Internet café, Bob asked to borrow a computer at a village hall, and Alex entered a high-street business premises and asked the owner if he could use their computer. The document on the USB stick instructed the fugitives to board a boat at Greenway Quay on the River Dart in Devon.

In a shock to the fugitives, the document also informed them that opening the document alerted the hunters to their location, using the computer's IP address. The fugitives successfully fled their respective locations, Alex throwing a piece of paper into a drain in front of a CCTV camera, knowing that the hunters would see. The hunters then spent a considerable amount of time emptying the drain and looking for the piece of paper, which they thought may reveal the location of the extraction point. However, it was a ruse by Alex, and the paper was worthless.

Using mobile phone triangulation, the hunters located the driver who gave Bob a lift from Sussex to Devon, and inferred that the extraction point would be on the River Dart. On the morning of the final day, the hunters were 200 metres away from finding Bob camping in a field. The hunters were unable to catch the four remaining fugitives on time and the contestants won £25,000 each.

Series 4 (2019)[edit]

It was confirmed at the end of the third series that a fourth series had been commissioned by Channel 4, The series began airing on 10 January 2019. The fugitives were escorted on a high-speed boat to the release point at the Port of Liverpool in Liverpool.

Notable events[edit]

In episode 1, the hunters initially pursued Loren Hannon who was noticeable in her yellow jumper which she later discarded near the entrance of an underground carpark. She succeeded in evading the hunters when she managed to get a lift from a stranger in the same carpark. Former fugitives and reformed criminals, Nick and Paul attempted to create a diversion by releasing decoys, but the hunters were able to catch onto their trick after noticing the shoes of one the decoys.

In episode 2, the hunters went to interrogate Matt Mason's wife, and discovered his hard drive containing his planned route. They were able to deduce that Matt would be travelling to Abergavenny after they received a shirt he sent them from Gwynedd in Wales. However, Matt changed his route to Abergavenny when he felt the hunters were closing in on him, unaware that they were already lying in wait for him at Abergavenny from his initial route. The same episode, Emma and Jess almost split up in Glasgow due to an argument.

In episode 3, the hunters almost found Matt with a drone in Gloucestershire while he was waiting to rendezvous with his wife. However, Matt was able to outrun the drone by hiding in a nearby forest where it was unable to detect him.

In episode 5, Nate Watt created a diversion by posting a livestream on Instagram in Nottingham to taunt the hunters. Ish Haruna took the opportunity to secretly meet up with his sister in Derby, while Nate remained in Nottingham to distract the hunters with a decoy pretending to be Ish. They intended to regroup in Dudley, but due to anxiety, Nate unintentionally separated from Ish when he decided to get dropped off towards east of Birmingham, 14 miles from where they were initally supposed to meet.

Extraction day[edit]

The contestants still at large on day 24 were given a pre-recorded message explaining details of the extraction location. To listen to the contents of the message, Harry Savage temporarily separated from his brother Frank and went to a nearby hotel to use its phone, Ish asked to borrow a phone in a butcher's shop, and Nate went to a local grocers and asked the owner if he could use his phone. The message instructed the fugitives to head to the roof of the Bull Ring shopping centre in Birmingham City Centre by 1 p.m. the next day, where they would be extracted by a helicopter.

To the shock of the fugitives, they were also informed that by accessing this message, their exact locations would be revealed to the hunters. While Harry and Frank, and Nate were successfully able to leave their perspective locations, the hunters captured Ish in Stafford. Ish was brought to Hunted HQ to be interrogated and the hunters attempted to bribe him with £4000 in exchange for the information about the extraction location. However, Ish refused to accept the £4000, but the hunters eventually found the extraction location using Ish's diary. The hunters were able to capture the remaining fugitives at the Edgbaston Carpark in Birmingham City Centre, thus achieving a clean sweep for the first time in the series. After the series had finished, Peter Bleksley, the Chief, announced in his twitter that he was leaving the show.

Notable events[edit]

In episode 1, Tory MP Johnny Mercer went back to London a day after he went on the run in order to take part in a crucial Brexit vote at Parliament. However, he was able to double-cross the hunters by using his wife as a decoy, knowing the hunters would assume he would be with her.

Production[edit]

Each fugitive was filmed by a dedicated cameraperson, who followed the fugitives wherever they went. While filming, the production team was split so that the team working with the hunters was separate from the team working with the fugitives, to prevent information passing between the groups and to provide a more realistic experience. In preparing for production, over 800 Freedom of Information requests were submitted to find the location of state-owned CCTV cameras positioned throughout the British mainland. When real footage could not be obtained, Channel 4 cameras captured footage that would have been available to the state, which was stored on a central database for the hunters to access if they wished. However, they had to "officially" request the information as if it were a real fugitive hunt.[17] The hunters were overseen by an independent adjudicator, former Head of Covert Operations for the Metropolitan Police, Kevin O’Leary, whose job was to make sure that the information requested and gathered by the hunters reflected the information that would be available to them in real life and within the appropriate time frame. He was the only person who had the power to release information to the hunters and would only do so when he considered that the hunters had done sufficient detective work to justify access to the information.[18]
