    Off-Road Write Offs, Season 1 | Episode 4

    Two teams compete to see who can make the most money by buying, breaking and selling parts from scrap cars. Fantastic 4x4s is the name of the game this time around as our two intrepid teams go in search of their very own off road icon to buy. Traditionally used for outdoor pursuits, 4x4 are now just as common on city streets as drivers seek the safety and comfort they provide for their urban cruiser of choice. This has upped the demand for parts but will it up our breakers profits? George and Sheldon opt for the best of British with the seminal Land Rover 90 whilst Frankie and Ben strike a distinctly Japanese theme with their Mitsubishi Pajero.

    Icebreaker, Season 3 | Episode 2

    Weighing in at over 93 thousand tonnes, the Timofey Guzhenko is by far the biggest icebreaking ship to operate in the Arctic Ocean. It can smash through solid ice a metre and a half thick and pulverise blocks of ice the size of a car with its huge propellers. This film explores icebreaking ship technology through four historic engineering breakthroughs. The film explores the inner workings of landmark icebreakers, including the world's first icebreaker, the German Eisbrecher 1 and the powerful nuclear powered Soviet icebreaker, the Lenin. Each features a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build bigger icebreakers. Using stunning CGI animation, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these machines. Four ingenious leaps forward that enabled icebreakers to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the Arctic Ocean's BIGGEST."

    Uk Big Bridge, Season 2 | Episode 9

    Hang on tight and don't look down as World's Toughest Fixes scales the iconic bridges of the UK: the world-famous Tower Bridge in London, and two bridges in Scotland -- the historic Forth Bridge and, right next door, the Forth Road Bridge. It's three bridges, three big problems, three tough fixes. In London, it's the famous Tower Bridge, with a serious lead contamination problem. In Scotland, it's all high access. Riley will help construct scaffolding from the top down, 367 feet above the water, dangling on a pole over speeding trains. And on an aging suspension bridge, Riley's rappelling down a 296-foot suspender cable, swinging in mid-air to run data cables to a high-tech monitoring system. It's a tour of some of the biggest fixes across the pond, meeting the men who are taking on the hazards to get the job done, on World's Toughest Fixes.

As a result, we view it as taboo, feeling disgust and fear around the dead, insisting on rituals like burials and cremations which allow us to keep a safe distance. Yet, around the world, there are people who deal with death as a matter of course and even gain satisfaction from it: meet a family of skull cleaners from Oklahoma city, a couple of body-collecting contractors from Maryland, a Florida man who trades in serial killer souvenirs, and Madagascans who regularly lug the remains of their dead relatives from their tombs.
