Discovery UK,

2017

| Adventure, Travel, Documentary
Rating: 3/5

Explorer, adventurer and survival expert Ed Stafford faces a brand new challenge in "Left for Dead". Dropped in to a different remote location each episode, Ed has up to 10 days to reach a rendezvous point, meet his extraction transport and get out alive. If he doesn't make it he faces even more time in isolation, the humility of calling in team support and the embarrassment of failure! This incredible new series sees Ed battling extreme environments around the world - think subtropical forests, dry deserts and uninhabited mountains. Ed has quite literally been dropped in the wilderness with a camera and no survival kit, and has just 10 days to reach human civilisation. With nothing but his wit and will about him, he must rely solely on his survival instincts.

Mega Transports

Everyone knows heavy haulage: large parts are transported on big trucks with yellow warning lights on streets. However, all that is 'peanuts' compared to these Mega Transports. These are transports that require pinpoint planning, which can only take place in certain time slots or with special safety precautions, and which large teams plan months in advance to get things ready. Follow the transport of mega yachts across the World's seas on even larger vessels, how 19,000 containers are stacked on the biggest container ship in the World, powered by the World's largest engine on its way through a needle's eye to the Port of Hamburg. Moreover each episode shows the detailed planning, the preparation of the cargo by disassembling, stabilising, protecting - and then the special moment when the goods are loaded and taken to their destinations via complicated paths (bottlenecks on roads, overhead lines, icy roads, extreme cold, rough seas). The finale of each episode is when the cargo is unloaded and put to use at the new location.
