Buckle up as award-winning British car aficionado, presenter and host, Richard Hammond once again takes viewers on the ride of their lives to spotlight engineering at its finest in Richard Hammond’s BIG. With decades’ worth of knowledge in all things motor, science, adrenaline, engineering and more, he embarks on a global adventure – from the UK to the USA and beyond – to explore the planet’s biggest structures and machines and the incredible ways engineers have supersized our world.
From Italy to Austria and The Netherlands, Hammond goes behind-the-scenes of these colossal structures and machines to understand the science of ‘big’ and how some of the world’s brightest minds build, drive, fly and use these superstructures every day. In each episode, Hammond travels to a new location with exclusive access to world-class demos and experiments that spotlight the incredible challenges these architects, engineers and inventors have overcome as they’ve pushed the frontiers of scale in the quest for the next ‘BIG’ thing.
Gold Rush: White Water is gold mining at its most extreme as the Dakota boys, led by father and son team Fred and Dustin Hurt, return to risk it all to unearth millions in gold by diving in the raging white water of creeks in the Alaskan wilderness. Last season the crew reached their limit at their McKinley Creek dive site and moved their operations to new mining sites on Cahoon Creek, 2,000 feet high up the remote Chilkat Mountains in southeast Alaska. Now for the first time in 10 years, father and son are splitting up and working on separate claims to double their chances of striking it rich. But the higher up they go, the more dangerous it gets. As they head deeper into the hostile Alaskan wilderness, they’ll risk their lives battling hungry bears, falling rocks and boulders, and raging currents, searching for a monster payday.
