Renowned author and adventurer Simon Reeve embarks on another incredible journey – this time across North America. He discovers a vast and varied continent, with deserts and jungles, and where great wealth exists alongside poverty, political divisions and human drama.
Simon meets with Montana cowboys who face an uncertain future, as well as the native people of Guatemala migrating north for a better life.
As Simon basks under the Mexican sun and shivers in the Arctic, he experiences the varying temperatures of a truly fascinating continent.
The weather is a staggeringly beautiful but destructive force, killing thousands of people every year. As this fascinating programme returns for a third series, we see the life-changing effects of devastating weather events as well as deadly natural disasters.
We also hear from those who witnessed the disasters first-hand, and the individuals who filmed them and survived share their jaw-dropping footage. In this unmissable series, a record-breaking cyclone wrecks South Pacific islands, Hurricane Florence brings flooding to North Carolina, and a magnitude seven earthquake rocks Alaska.
Other devastating global weather events featured in this series include a tornado which traps teachers in America, a landslide which hits hikers in Argentina, and life- changing floods which trap residents in Australia.
