Based on Lonely Planet’s best-selling guide A Year of Adventures, this five-part series follows adrenalin-hunter Ben Fogle as he travels all over the planet in pursuit of action and adventure in some of the most breath-taking places on Earth.

From hovercraft racing to the London Rat Race, coasteering on the Welsh Pembrokeshire coast to diving under a glacier in Iceland’s freezing waters, this journey takes Fogle across the globe as he overcomes his fears and demonstrates what anyone can achieve if they really put their minds to it.

(YEAR OF ADVENTURES with Ben Fogle premieres Saturday 10 March at 18:00 on BBC Knowledge – channel 251 on DStv)
