Forty-three countries down, Hera van Willick rides her bicycle across continents, fully self-supported, sharing her journey and what she has learned along the way.
In the remote Russian Arctic, an aging scientist and his son are trying to recreate the Ice Age. They call their experiment Pleistocene Park – a perfect home for woolly mammoths, resurrected by modern genetics. But the mammoths are only a means to a bigger end: defusing a carbon timebomb frozen in the permafrost to slow the effects of global warming.
Planet Earth II - Mountain Ibex (Tour Edit)
Only a few pioneering animals have what it takes to survive in the World's highest mountain ranges and they tend to be some of the most elusive and mysterious animals on the planet. Climb to a world that is beautiful but full of danger, where ibex live and thrive.
La Casita Wip
Two girls from Ecuador have a dream of building their own dirt jumping track in their backyard. So they get to work.
Breaking 60 - Challenging the Impossible (Tour Edit)
A 298 kilometre battle with over 14,000 metres of elevation gain in hills around Hong Kong, Breaking 60 follows the hopes of four ultrarunners who have one goal in mind – to break 60 hours.
