In Deadly Dinosaurs, a brand new series for CBBC, award-winning presenter Steve Backshall is on the hunt for the most deadly animals to have ever walked the earth: dinosaurs.
Expedition with Steve Backshall will follow Steve, his team of world-class experts and his film crew, as they venture into uncharted territory.
Steve Backshall said: “If you think our planet was explored long ago, think again. There are still dark and forgotten corners of our world with hidden secrets and we plan to reveal them.”
Steve is accompanied by a world class film crew who will document the journey and feature on camera throughout the series. The filming of the expedition is as much a part of the story as the exploration of each out-of-this-world location. To be successful, Steve and his adventurist experts – including divers, kayakers and mountaineers – will have to rely on each other and the power of extraordinary teamwork.
Steve Backshall takes on one of the most notorious mountain climbs in the world, the north face of the Eiger in Switzerland.
Steve knows it’s the team around him who will make all the difference as he sets out to realise his boyhood dream. Steve’s wife, double Olympic rowing champion Helen Glover, puts him through his paces as he strives to reach peak fitness in the months leading up to the challenge. Whilst one of Britain's greatest climbers, Leo Houlding, partners Steve as they train on Gogarth Cliffs in North Wales.
But Steve must be ready mentally as well as physically if he is to achieve his dream of reaching the summit of the Eiger.
After months of gruelling physical and mental training in the UK and Swiss Alps, Steve and his elite climbing team are ready to climb the mountain dubbed ‘The Ogre’. But they quickly discover that the vertical mile of treacherous rock isn’t the only challenge. Faced with brittle ice-covered cliffs, blinding blizzards and deep biting cold sweeping in with the Beast from the East, Steve finds himself pushed to the very edge of his ability. As a monster storm front moves in, heart-breaking decisions must be made in a race against time to save the expedition.
