BBC3 is to follow up factual hit Blood, Sweat And Takeaways with a series investigating how life’s little luxuries make it to the High Street.

In Blood, Sweat and Luxuries, six British youths will travel to foreign production lines to see what really goes into making the indulgences they enjoy. They will be sent to gem mines in Madagascar, into leather and coffee production in Ethiopia, e-recycling and gold mining in Ghana and the electronics industry in the Philippines.

The 5 x 60-minute series will be produced by Ricochet. It was ordered by Harry Lansdown, commissioning editor for BBC3 features, formats and specialist factual. Creative director is Mark Rubens and executive producer is Tim Quicke.

It follows Blood, Sweat And Takeaways, which was the highest ever rating factual programme on BBC3 and explored the human cost of food production in South East Asia. The franchise originated with the Bafta-nominated Blood, Sweat And T-Shirts.

The new series will air in April.
