Thinking of taking that vacation to space anytime soon? This series examines what it might entail, from the drastic climate shifts to the stunning sights, by bringing viewers up close with these distant worlds via advanced animation. Back on Earth, extreme environments, such as Hawaii's volcanoes or the Atacama Desert in Chile, are visited by NASA scientists to approximate what a trip to the other planets might be like. Segments also include a preview of a soon-to-launch space probe to Jupiter, and what the first manned mission to Mars will be like.
The Florida Everglades' Big Cypress Swamp, under the governance of people of the Seminole tribe, is home to more than 1,600 animals that run wild on thousands of acres. The Billie Swamp Safari offers visitors a chance to come face to face with the animals, ranging from ostriches and bison to venomous snakes and raccoons. The goal -- in line with Native Americans' love of harmony with nature -- is to immerse the visitors in the wild. But these close encounters sometimes lead to danger ... for both the people and the wildlife. The park's director, Ed Woods, and his tough team of self-described "swamp men" patrol the land to move animals out of dangerous situations and rescue animals in need.
As one of the lead designers for nine seasons on ABC's Emmy-winning "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," Paul DiMeo encountered his share of next-to-impossible construction projects. So building wilderness retreats is a walk in the park by comparison, right? Not so fast. Paulie, as he is known, and master fabricator Pat "Tuffy" Bakaitis are partners in a cabin design and construction business called Cabin Kings, and in "Building Wild," the duo create unbelievable rustic getaways, transforming discarded materials into eye-catching contraptions and overcoming outrageous building challenges along the way. In each episode, Paulie and Tuffy provide the big ideas and construction know-how to a client looking to build a backwoods paradise on a challenging property. To keep costs low, the landowners supply some materials, bring together a workforce of friends and family and agree to do the entire build in one week.
