North America: Top Ten
Our intrepid viewers aren’t just armchair travelers; they get out there. More than 35,000 votes were cast in our online poll asking, "What's the top North America destination?" and we countdown the results in this special episode, revealing some surprises. From the icy peaks of Mt. McKinley to the serene shores of the Outer Banks, there's a passion for places across this continent and a multitude of ways to experience them. We will soar with condors in the Grand Canyon and swim with stingrays in Belize, slide with polar bears across Canada's frozen terrain and swamp boat with 'gators in the Everglades.
North America: Revealed
To film North America our film crews spent 3 years travelling across the length and breadth of this vast continent. With over 2800 days in the field - covering 8 countries and nearly 30 US States - this episode shows what it took to reveal the full wonders of North America as never before. Many of our shoots tested the crews to their mental and physical limits, whether it was trekking across the Rockies' bone chilling peaks in the middle of winter in the search of mountain goats, filming hugely elusive animals like jaguars and mountain lions, or getting close to battling bull bison. But perhaps the most dangerous mission of all was when one team went head to head with Hurricane Irene, the biggest storms of the decade.
