• Car Vs Wild, Discovery Channel, 22.30
Ex-British Special Forces operative Gary Humphrey and American car junkie Bill Wu are dropped into some of the world’s most remote landscapes, with a small red car. Their challenge: to drive and survive until they reach safety. But each location they land in has one thing in common – no one has ever taken a car there before. With no proper roads, no spare parts and only basic rations, they must rely on their wits and their wheels as they pit themselves against the clock, the land and each other. From the frozen peak of a volcano, to a dense rainforest, this pair must use whatever they can find to turn a regular car into an all-purpose, all-terrain vehicle.
