Journalist and consumer protection expert Dom Littlewood will front a new factual series for BBC One Daytime, Maximum Security, which will investigate the security measures and systems employed by British businesses, buildings, and border authorities.

The 10 x 45-minute series will see Littlewood (pictured) traveling across the UK to speak with security experts about how they keep corporate, governmental and institutional secrets safely under lock and key.

The show will also bring things closer to home, as Littlewood demonstrates everyday precautions that viewers can take to make their homes more secure. These tips are also illustrated via interviews with people who have been victims of theft, and have now introduced measures to help mitigate against this ever happening again.

“I want to help the nation protect themselves, their homes, families, businesses and even their pets from these unscrupulous thieves, so we can all feel a bit safer in our own homes,” Littlewood said in a release.

Lindsay Bradbury, acting head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak, added: “Maximum Security epitomizes Daytime’s commitment to bringing relevant factual content to viewers that is both insightful and useful in our everyday lives. This series will captivate viewers and expose the lengths criminals will go to to try and gain access into our homes and our livelihoods.”

Bradbury commissioned the series for BBC Daytime, and has slated it for a late summer premiere. The series was developed at BBC Studios Bristol by head of development Fran Haines and her team. Maddi Knibbs serves as series editor for BBC Studios, Factual Entertainment Cardiff, with Juliet Rice overseeing the Fact-Ent division as creative director.
