Undercover Tourist is a self-shot conservation series which tells the stories that traditional crews can't access.
Posing as tourists and filming undercover, amateur wildlife activists travel to some of the world's most popular holiday destinations to investigate the illegal wildlife trade.
Armed with smartphones and digital cameras the filmmakers go behind closed doors to expose the cruel and sometimes criminal businesses that are illegally exploiting animals.
In the Thailand episode, journalist Katie Stacey and her boyfriend Luke Massey investigate the captive tiger industry, exploring the speed breeding of cubs and the tiger venues that offer tiger selfies.
