Freaks Of Nature
12 x 30'
If you think that people who possess the power to control, manipulate or conquer nature are the stuff of myth and legend, then think again! Living amongst us are nature’s greatest adversaries, ordinary, real-life people with special powers that put them above and beyond the rest of us. They can perform extraordinary feats that would kill anyone else who attempted them.
Freaks of Nature takes viewers around the globe to meet an elite group of people who have the ability to harness the planet’s most deadly forces. Host Tyler Harcott compares an average human – himself! – to these forces of nature, taking on the same challenges, and pushing his own body to extremes.
From the man who abseils into the jaws of an active volcano; to the man who rides waves over 80ft high; to Darren Taylor, who dives from 35ft into less than 12 inches of water; to the man who can withstand -20°C, for 90 minutes!
