Physician assistant Jeff Evans specializes in high altitude and travel medicine, taking part in 12 Himalayan expeditions, including guiding the first and only blind climber to the summit of Mount Everest. It's those types of compelling challenges and adventures that attract Evans to one of the planet's most mystical places, stories of which are captured in Travel Channel's "Everest Air." The six-part special features unprecedented access to Evans and his skilled crew of Sherpa mountaineers and rescue helicopter pilots. Patrolling Everest's slopes from base camp to its balcony, Evans and the Alpine Rescue Service team go higher and further than any group has gone before to aid climbers in need. It's a unique perspective on what can happen when anyone dares to tackle the majestic peak, which stands a jaw-dropping 29,029 feet above sea level.

It's said that for every 10 people who reach the summit of Mount Everest, one dies trying. Yet, even with the margin of error between life and death so fine, hundreds of climbers and Sherpas attempt to scale the epic peak each year. Their fate often rests in the hands of elite helicopter pilots performing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The six-episode "Everest Rescue" highlights the work of pilots, including veteran Jason Laing and rookies Ryan Skorecki and Lorenz Nufer, who risk their lives to save stranded climbers as well as in-distress men and women from surrounding Himalayan villages. The high altitude means there is limited time to complete the rescue missions, making them that much riskier.

The gold rush in Alaska isn't confined to the state's precious ground. It's taking place on the sea ... or more accurately, on the bottom of the frigid Bering Sea. This series, from the creators of the Emmy-winning "Deadliest Catch," follows four gold dredges and their eccentric and driven crews who risk their lives to find as much gold as possible before winter sets in and it's too dangerous to dive. The custom-built rigs, some barely seaworthy, include an 80-foot barge run by the most successful gold dredger in Nome, Alaska, and a modified skiff that seats only two people.

Tradition collides with transformation in McCarthy, Alaska. The isolated town -- once considered to be the state's version of "Sin City" -- flourished during the Gold Rush but is now home to roughly 40 people, a mix of mavericks, risk takers and rabble rousers willing to brave extreme conditions to live free. While some believe in continuing the town's frontier way of life, others feel the future of McCarthy depends on dragging it into the modern age. Long-standing resident Jeremy Keller fights to protect its roots, while Neil Darish has purchased multiple properties in town and plans to restore its vibrancy. "Edge of Alaska" tells the story of a hinterland at a crossroads.

"Escapologist" Jonathan Goodwin tries to get out of a series of bizarre and potentially dangerous homemade contraptions to illustrate various theories. For example, he might attempt to escape from a rapidly spinning barrel as it hurtles down a hillside to show how spinning affects the human body, or lock himself inside a box on top of a shaking washing machine while his body is covered in 200,000 testy bees just to illustrate what the body can do with minimal movement. In another segment, Goodwin allows himself to be used as a human projectile, placed into a giant slingshot and launched more than 65 feet into the air.

Back to the beautiful state of Alaska for another reality-documentary series, this one set in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a protected area home to thousands of native animals... and a handful of people. In 1980, the U.S. government banned human occupation in the refuge, and only residents in seven permitted cabins are allowed to remain. The series depicts the daily rituals of four families living in isolation and contending with bitter weather, frustrating setbacks, and aggressive wildlife in an unspoiled and unforgiving wilderness. The nonconformists include Heimo Korth, the "godfather of the final frontier," and wife Edna; Bob Harte, who has spent 40 years living by his own rules; and young couple Bob and Ashley Selden, who admit that they've survived by trial and error, learning day by day the harsh reality of frontier living.
