Egypt with The World's Greatest Explorer



Egypt with The World's Greatest Explorer


Sundays from 31 March at 8.30pm Channel 072

The 'World's Greatest Living Explorer', Sir Ranulph Fiennes, returns to scene of one of his earliest feats - his 1969 hovercraft expedition on the River Nile in this 3-part adventure documentary series. For over 50 years Sir Ranulph has lived through countless escapades and life-threatening experiences.  From summiting Everest to discovering a lost city in Oman, he’s accomplished more than most men can ever dream of.  As the 50th anniversary of his 1969 expedition approaches he's ready for a new challenge, can he teach his famous cousin, actor Joseph Fiennes how to master the role of a lifetime? Retracing the steps of the original expedition, together they’ll crawl through the claustrophobic confines of a newly discovered ancient Egyptian tomb in Minya, get to grips with Tachtib – a traditional fighting technique using four foot sticks and come face-to-face with deadly snakes and spiders.
