DESCRIPTION:
(from PBS's press release, November 2019) PBS's new 10-episode series EXPEDITION WITH STEVE BACKSHALL reveals there are still parts of our planet yet to be discovered. Explorer and naturalist Steve Backshall pursues incredible journeys and world firsts - unclimbed peaks, unexplored cave systems and uncharted landscapes - setting foot where no human has been before. As the preeminent destination for engaging, enlightening and entertaining science and natural history programming, PBS continues to deliver with this series. EXPEDITION WITH STEVE BACKSHALL premieres on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings), PBS.org and the PBS Video App. "In EXPEDITION WITH STEVE BACKSHALL, PBS gives a glimpse into some of the incredible parts of the world that have yet to be explored," said Bill Margol, Senior Director, General Audience Programming & Development for PBS. "The world is full of surprising discoveries and journeys to be made, and we hope to spark viewers' curiosity and ignite their spirit of adventure." In this global series, adventurer and naturalist Steve Backshall ventures into undiscovered territory, endures extreme physical challenges, encounters extraordinary wildlife and teams up with remarkable people along the way. From free-diving in underground river systems and descending deep into the caves of the Maya underworld, to kayaking Himalayan whitewater and scaling unclimbed Arctic peaks, these expeditions push Backshall and his expert crew to the limit. "There are still countless expeditions to be conquered and world discoveries to be made, and I am honored to have had the ability to be among the first to set foot in these incredible places," said Steve Backshall, host. "It is thrilling to not know what you will find next. That's what exploration is all about."
