This one-off-special film pairs adventurer Sacha Dench as she flies – green-powered – all around Britain’s coast in search of climate change solutions, with Joanna Lumley who lends her an enthusiastic hand.
Joanna shadows Sacha – aka ‘The Human Swan’ – as she attempts to set a new world record with a powerful purpose. Over several weeks Sacha plans to clock up unprecedented mileage, as she circumnavigates Britain with her prototype low-carbon electric paramotor.
Along the way Joanna will team up with Sacha as they meet inspirational people, all helping to drive the green revolution: scientists, entrepreneurs, divers, rangers and families.
Made by Wingspan Productions for ITV, the film will mark the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow later this year, sending a message of can-do optimism to politicians and viewers alike in our drive for a net zero future.
Joanna Lumley says: “I’m thrilled to be following Sacha’s journey as she soars into the history books, and inspires us to confront the greatest challenge mankind has faced in recorded time.” Sacha Dench says: “I’m doing this to help change the way we think about tackling climate change and celebrate all the incredible innovators who are really making a difference.”
