HISTORY.COM PROFILES THE PEOPLE & PLACES FEATURED IN ICE ROAD TRUCKERS WITH EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

Season Two of Hit Series That Chronicles History of Arctic Region Airs Sundays at 9pm ET/PT on HISTORY�

NEW YORK, JULY 2, 2008 � HISTORY� today announced that new, exclusive content is available at www.history.com/iceroadtruckers, a minisite that provides profiles on the people and places featured in the HISTORY American Original series ICE ROAD TRUCKERS, which airs on Sundays at 9pm ET/PT.

The minisite for season two of the hit series features exclusive short-form videos, trivia, exclusive interviews and more. The site also includes a selection of videos, maps, interviews and other digital content from season one that can be accessed in the minisite�s archives. New features of the minisite include:

Ice Road Backdrop Builder � An interactive feature that allows users to create and download wallpapers including customizable Arctic environments (time of day, weather conditions, etc.).

Cold Weather Survival Guide � Tips on how to stay warm and avoid injury, and info on dangerous cold-weather myths.

All About Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk � In-depth information about the towns where the new season takes place.

Technology of the Ice Road � Information outlining the differences in building roads over a lake vs. a river or ocean.

The new season follows some of the truckers from last season, along with new drivers, as they haul essential equipment and supplies to remote outposts across one of the world�s last great frontiers, the vaunted winter ice road that runs over the frozen Arctic Ocean and the Mackenzie River in the farthest reaches of the Northwest Territories. The long history of survival here during the grueling winter months has been and still is dependent on these ice roads. Although technology has changed how they deal with the titanic forces of nature of the Arctic Circle, the native people of the region still live by their traditions and rich history.

For a brief window during the coldest part of the winter, the only way to reach the remote communities and natural gas exploration sites of this region, which lies more than 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, is by driving over an extraordinary ice road that winds along the Mackenzie River. Contending with Arctic storms that hit without a moment�s notice, even the most seasoned truckers find themselves challenged by the extreme polar conditions, isolation and the lack of basic comforts. Temperatures during the winter months here can dip as low as -60.

Executive Producers for History� are David McKillop and Dolores Gavin. ICE ROAD TRUCKERS is produced by Original Productions. Executive Producers for Original Productions are Thom Beers and Philip Segal.
