MUMBAI: Infotainment channel Sony BBC Earth will launch a new series featuring ace wildlife enthusiast, adventurer, and presenter Steve Backshall.

The series will air beginning 18 November on Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm.

First up is Steve Backshall’s Extreme Mountain Challenge where he and his team attempt to explore the ancient, sheer-sided mountains and lost worlds cut off from the jungle below. The team encounters strange creatures and ancient mysteries, making it a supremely intriguing journey.

Next up is Steve Backshall’s Extreme River Challenge where he sets out to explore one of the wildest rivers in the world, the mighty Baliem River in the island of New Guinea, just north of Australia. In this series, he is on a mission to discover the ancient tribes that live along its banks and meet the dangerous animals lurking in the river and the surrounding jungles. Steve also attempts to trap one of the world’s biggest saltwater crocodiles!

The deadliest encounter comes next with hair-raising adventure in Deadly 60 on a Mission: Pole to Pole. For the first time ever, Steve looks at deadly forces of nature, from exploding super volcanoes to mighty glaciers and travels with his crew from the Arctic to the Atlantic in search of the world’s deadliest wildlife.
