Simon Reeve travels through Central Asia in this four-part BBC TV series, shown on BBC2, BBC World and by broadcasters internationally. The adventure took Simon from the far north-west of Kazakhstan, by the Russian border, east to the Chinese border, south through Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to the edge of Afghanistan, and west to Uzbekistan and the legendary Silk Road cities of Samarkand and Bukhara. The Guardian said it was 'a thrilling postcard from the edge' The Times said: 'Simon Reeve's journey through Kazakhstan is a first-class Boys Own adventure on film and illuminating too. I can't imagine anyone switching off who stays for the first five minutes.'

Republic of Tajikistan Is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia, the territory that now constitutes Tajikistan was previously home to several ancient cultures, including the city of Sarazm of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, and was later home to kingdoms ruled by people of different faiths and cultures, including the Oxus civilisation, Andronovo culture, Buddhism, Nestorian Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Manichaeism and Islam. The area has been ruled by numerous empires and dynasties, including the Achaemenid Empire, Sasanian Empire, Hephthalite Empire, Samanid Empire, Mongol Empire, Timurid dynasty, and the Russian Empire. As a result of the break-up of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan became an independent nation in 1991. A civil war was fought almost immediately after independence, lasting from 1992 to 1997. Since the end of the war, newly established political stability and foreign aid have allowed the country's economy to grow. Tajikistan is a presidential republic consisting of four provinces. Most of Tajikistan's 8 million people belong to the Tajik ethnic group, who speak Tajik (a dialect of Persian). Many Tajiks also speak Russian as their second language. Mountains cover more than 90% of the country. It has a transition economy that is highly dependent on remittances, aluminium and cotton production.

Russian/Nat Drugs smuggling throughout the former Soviet Central Asian republics has surged since the collapse of the Soviet Union led to a breakdown in borders. The Russian government claims over half of all drugs in Russia come from Tajikistan or via Tajikistan from Afghanistan. Some say the Central Asian state is becoming the Colombia of the CIS. The Tajik police are trying to fight the upsurge in drug trafficking but find themselves undermanned and underequipped. The mountain range of Zaravshan in Northern Tajikistan - a thousand metres above sea level, it is an area of wild and natural beauty. And separated from the rest of Tajikistan by almost impassable mountains, it is an ideal location for the country's fastest growing business - drugs. According to estimates, one hectare can yield up to 60 kilogrammes of raw opium. And the men who farm the plantations can make as much as 1000 dollars per kilogramme. But this is only a fraction of the true value of the drug to Russia's drug barons who process the raw opium into pure heroin in their clandestine laboratories in Russia's large cities. The street value of the processed drug increases tenfold. Although the volume of drugs coming out of Central Asia is a fraction of the notorious golden triangle in the Far East, or the cocaine fields of Central America, the authorities are alarmed at the speed at which it is growing. Hundreds of men make the long trek up the mountain every week to collect the precious drops of milk from hectare upon hectare of poppies. For many in the poorest of the former Soviet republics, it is their only source of income. The Tajik farmers do not like what they do but say the economic chaos in the country leaves them with little choice SOUNDBITE: (Russian) There are no jobs. We have no income. Depending on the number of people who work for me, from 20 to 30, we can collect a kilogramme in a day. That's about a thousand dollars. SUPERCAPTION: Akhmed, drug farmer - did not want to show his face But the relative safety enjoyed by Akhmed and his fellow farmers may soon be over. Lieutenant-Colonel Karim Yunusov and his men have been charged with the task of tracking down and destroying this year's crop. Although they have scored some successes already, Yunusov freely admits that the operation, code-named Opium '95, is unlikely to leave more than a dent in such a well-run business. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) The current situation is all due to the collapse of the Soviet Union, with its ensuing economic and political difficulties. All these factors probably compelled people to engage in drug trafficking. Many enterprises remain idle. People have been laid off. And those who do work get miserable salaries. There are problems galore and we won't resolve them by just destroying the poppies. SUPERCAPTION: Lt-Col Karim Yunusov, regional drug enforcement chief Yunusov allows his men a moment to keep for posterity before the battle commences. Armed only with sticks the results are of limited effect. At such high altitudes his men must stop every few minutes to catch their breath. And as fast as they destroy the crops, over the other side of the mountain farmers are starting yet more plantations. Yunusov badly needs better equipment. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) We have no kerosene to fly our only helicopter and we can't use it all the time anyway. If we had a helicopter we could have flown up to the mountain and destroyed all the crops immediately. SUPERCAPTION: Lt-Col Karim Yunusov, regional drug enforcement chief As it is, it takes Yunusov and his men four hours just to climb the mountain. With such limited manpower and lack of equipment they face an uphill battle.

Nov 2007 Tajikistan is struggling to cope with an influx of cheap drugs from Afghanistan. The country has just one rehab clinic and on average, ten soldiers a year die in shoot outs with drug traffickers. Last year, more than two billion dollars worth of heroin was smuggled from Afghanistan. "No matter how much effort we put into fighting the trafficking, the real problem is in Afghanistan", complains General Nazarov. Many are nostalgic of the days of the Taliban, when heroin was much harder to obtain.
