Rating: 4/5

While most survival shows feature just one or two extreme environments, The Wheel demands that participants conquer eight distinctly grueling landscapes across the world, each requiring a completely different set of survival skills. With each turn of the Wheel, survivalists must tackle the planet's most unforgiving terrains - including freezing tundra, parched deserts, rugged mountains and steamy jungles - one immediately after another, with little time to prepare what few tools and materials they have. The participants are completely at the Wheel's mercy, as its every rotation thrusts them into a new harrowing domain without warning. When and how quickly will the Wheel turn? That's for the viewers to know...and for the survivalists to agonize and obsess over. When a survivalist breaks down and taps out, the Wheel keeps on turning until only one is left standing. But can anyone survive The Wheel?

Rating: 3/5

Renowned gem hunter Guy Clutterbuck is on a mission to find the world's most precious gems. To do this, he has assembled a specialist squad; an Aussie miner, an American engineer, an American gold prospector and explosives expert, and a British ex-Army mechanic. Together they'll travel to the farthest reaches of the globe to source small scale gem mines that produce rubies, emeralds, sapphires and all manners of precious stones. But gem mining has a shady reputation so Guy and his team plan to do things differently. They will find ethical mines, and working alongside the local miners, they'll combine their Western know-how with local knowledge to find these precious rough gems that the team can then buy, cut and sell for a profit. This is a high-stakes gem hunt that could make them, and the local communities working with them, a lot of money. Each mission is high risk, full of real life jeopardy and extreme environments. From the muddy pit mines of Madagascar and the spectacular emerald rich mountain caves of Colombia to the barren Arctic landscape of Greenland where blood red rubies spill across the rocky wasteland, the team will take on the elements, terrain, and even each other on their epic mission - crucially putting their own money and reputations on the line.
