A unique story teller and comedian - described as the “Ranulph Fiennes of British Climbing" by BBC Radio 4's Today programme - Andy climbs in some of the most inhospitable places on earth, from Greenland to Alaska, Patagonia to Antarctica. In this new tour, he takes up where his last finished, arriving in Antarctica dreaming of climbing the 'hardest mountain in the world’, before further cold adventures in Alaska, Norway and Patagonia. As with all of Andy’s shows, Cold Mountain is a mash up of thoughts and experiences, good times and bad, laughter and maybe tears, but certainly out of this world.
Mark has taken on numerous world records in ultra-endurance. He cycled the globe 82 days faster than the previous time, pedalled the length of the Americas and recently smashed the Cairo to Cape Town record.
Africa Solois a story of extreme endurance, through deserts, mountains and vast savannah, as much as it is the people who made this journey possible. It’s a tough, sobering, heart-warming account of a continent often portrayed for the wrong reasons, and Mark's ambition to push his limits and set unbreakable World Records.
Speakers from the Edge has a history of only working with speakers who have been through it... literally to the edge and back. Will Millard is a jungle explorer, the Presenter of BBC Two’s highly praised Hunters of the South Seas series and a writer (for Geographical, Outdoor Fitness, BBC, Daily Telegraph and Vice magazine) who spent his twenties seeking ancient intertribal trade routes in unexplored West Papua, and broadcast his hair-raising experiences rafting the Sierra Leonean border in a critically acclaimed series for BBC Radio 4.
Described by the Times as a “bonafide explorer who looks more like a bookworm than Bear Grylls”, Will brings his humour and genuine sense of wonderment to this brand new show. Featuring stories from the seldom-seen lives of the Bajau spearmen, a first-hand account from the shoulder of an aboriginal whale hunt, and hard lessons from the most remote forest on earth, this promises to be a gripping tale of adventure from the forgotten edges of the planet.
