BBC Three and BBC Current Affairs have unveiled their upcoming investigative documentary titled “Andrew Tate: Unveiling the Global Architect?” (working title).
This documentary delves into the intricate web woven by the Tate brothers on an international scale.
For the very first instance, spectators will be granted unprecedented access into the inner sanctum surrounding Andrew Tate, shedding light on the individuals instrumental in shaping his ascent to a worldwide emblem. The film delves into the philosophical underpinnings and ultimate objectives of both Andrew Tate and his cohorts. Moreover, it uncovers the far-reaching aftermath of his global network, potentially leaving numerous victims in its tumultuous wake.
Guided by investigative journalist Matt Shea and under the directorial expertise of Jamie Tahsin, the documentary traverses across borders – from Romania to Buenos Aires and the United States. Its aim is to unravel the extent and complexion of Andrew Tate’s sway over the global stage.
Reporter Matt Shea says: “We have now been investigating Andrew Tate and his inner circle for four years and are almost ready to reveal what we’ve uncovered.
“In this documentary we uncover Tate’s global network, which spans multiple continents, affects potentially hundreds of victims, and ultimately seek to discover who is really behind Andrew Tate.”
Nasfim Haque, Head of Content, BBC Three says: “Viewers loved Tahsin and Shea’s illuminating first documentary about Andrew Tate, this film continues their brilliant investigative work and reveals even more about how Tate and his organisation operate their global network.”
Joanna Carr, News Controller, Long Form Commissioning says: “This is a powerful film which shines a light on the activities of Andrew Tate and those who are working closely with him. It will help us to understand how and why Andrew Tate is able to influence so many young people in the UK and across the world.”
Mike Radford, Executive Producer of the documentary says: “The documentary is testament to the tenacity and dedication of Matt and Jamie in investigating Andrew Tate and his organisation. It’s important that as many people as possible should be made aware of the workings of him and his close associates.”
In June, controversial influencer Andrew Tate was charged with rape, human trafficking and forming an organised crime group to sexually exploit women.
The indictment by Romanian authorities said that Tate, his brother Tristan and two Romanian women formed an organised criminal group in 2021 to commit human trafficking in Romania, and other countries, including the US and UK. They have denied any wrongdoing.
Tahsin and Shea previously collaborated on award-winning film The Dangerous Rise of Andrew Tate, a VICE special report which broadcast on BBC Three earlier this year and is one of the BBC’s best performing unscripted acquisitions for 16-34s over the last 18 months to date. The film is available to watch now via BBC iPlayer.
Andrew Tate: The Man Who Groomed the World? (w/t) is commissioned by Nasfim Haque, Head of Content, BBC Three and Joanna Carr, News Controller Long Form Commissioning. The film is directed by Jamie Tahsin and the Executive Producer is Mike Radford.
