Wilderness and survival expert Hazen Audel takes treacherous paths in this documentary series. Using his knowledge and skills, Audel sets off on a journey via lesser traveled roads, where the terrain is unstable and the elements are often harsh and unpredictable. Stopping in local communities, Audel speaks to native residents to gather as much information about the area as possible. Following in the footsteps of the Embera tribe, the survival guide goes on a jungle trek through the Darien Gap. In other episodes, he navigates the Arctic Circle with 200 reindeer in tow and crosses crocodile-infested lakes.

Re-creating the annual journey of more than a million wildebeests across Africa, 20 men and women attempt to complete the 200-mile, six-week trek on foot without weapons, maps or compasses. The human herd -- a mix of ex-special forces operatives, survivalists, athletes, scientists and others -- must brave harsh elements, lethal apex predators and one another as it navigates north through scorched Serengeti plains to reach the Mara River, the pinnacle of the wildebeests' death-defying quest for life. As exhaustion, hunger or injury thins the herd, the hard-core elite who remain push the limits of the human spirit and capability in Africa's most unforgiving region.
Produced by the team that created BBC's "Planet Earth" series, "The Hunt" explores the relationship between predators and their prey. Sir David Attenborough narrates this documentary while the cameras follow the animals in their natural habitats. With a specific focus on strategy, the hunters are examined in detail -- from their use of the environment to their sharp instincts and physical prowess. On the other side of the fence are the hunted, which use their senses and defense tactics to flee when they feel threatened. Each episode centers on a different habitat, and the last one focuses on the state of the planet.
Extreme survivalists go head to head in a race across the Alaska wild. Using ingenuity, experience and just the gear they can carry in their packs, the participants have 60 hours to reach the finish point of each leg of the adventure -- the series features 13 legs -- and in addition to navigating treacherous glaciated river valleys, barren ridgelines, and high mountain peaks, the challengers battle hunger, dangerous predators and unpredictable weather. There is no grand prize awaiting each leg's winner, other than the pride of accomplishing a grueling feat. For season three, the 12 competitors are divided equally into four teams -- Military, Endurance, Alaskans and Lower 48.
Whenever documentary filmmakers at Discovery Channel and the BBC unite for a project, stellar television seems to follow. "Planet Earth: Africa" stems from this collaboration, as did the breakthrough natural history series "Life" in 2009. David Attenborough narrated that one, and he's back to take viewers on a journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa. Four years in the making, during which more than 2,000 hours of video were shot, the program consists of six hour-long episodes that feature an array of never-before-filmed species, animal behaviors and previously unknown places. Cameras uncover the extreme dangers of the Kalahari, the dense forests and snow-capped peaks of the Savannah, the dynamic Congo rainforest, the ever-changing climate of the Cape and the massive and parched Sahara.
