Taking The Flak was a BBC2 sitcom set in a fictitious African war-torn country and followed the exploits of the BBC news team sent to cover the conflict.
Filmed on location in Tanzania and Kenya, this was a hugely challenging series to film, that utilised a large proportion of local crew and cast to shoot the six episodes.
Taking The Flak starred Martin Jarvis and Doon Mackichan in a cast that also included Ruby Wax and a host of smaller roles populated by people that had never appeared on television before.
Adam co-directed Taking The Flak with John Rolph, who also wrote the series with Tira Schubart and Sandra Jones.
