Todd Sampson’s BodyHack will premiere its second season on Thursdays later this month.
Award-winning documentary maker and adventure addict Todd Sampson sets out on a second season of epic adventures to try to unlock the secrets of some of the world’s most extraordinary people.
Todd will face extreme and at times unfathomable challenges, risking his body, his safety and at times his sanity, as he travels the globe to immerse himself in cultures most of us are not even aware of.
This season Todd will uncover night vision with the Matsés of the Amazon, come under fire with Iraqi frontline soldiers in the battle against ISIS, channel pain with the sādhu holy men of India, learn to fly with the kung fu masters of China, find the courage to run into a burning building with the firefighters of Washington DC and survive minus 40 degree temperatures with the Kazakh eagle hunters of Mongolia, all in the name of science.
Experiencing the human condition in all its glorious forms, Todd will take viewers on a visually fantastic journey from the frozen wastelands of Mongolia to the steaming jungles of the Peru, to witness first-hand the ability of our species to go beyond the limit.
Todd Sampson’s BodyHack 2.0.
Premieres Thursday 31 May At 8.30pm on Ten
