U.K. Knife Violence Takes Center Stage in New VICE Doc


Later this month, VICE is due to debut On a Knife Edge, a new hour-long documentary focused on the current knife crime epidemic in London.

On a Knife Edge spotlights the fact that in recent years, more young men have been killed as the result of knife violence in London than at any other point during the past decade. Filmed over the course of two years, the doc is presented by community activist and former gang member Josh Osbourne.

On a Knife Edge will make its cross-platform premiere on Thursday, September 20, at 10 p.m. on VICE TV, VICE digital, Snapchat Discover and IGTV.
