RACE ACROSS THE WORLD RENEWED FOR FOURTH SERIES ON BBC ONE
The BBC hit global competition series, Race Across The World returns with an eight-part series, this time to a new home on BBC One and BBC iPlayer this March.
The last series started out at the very edge of the Pacific in Vancouver - the teams will travel over 16,000 kilometres across six time zones all at ground level to the finish line perched on the rugged Atlantic coast, North America’s most easterly city - St John’s Newfoundland.
Without the use of air travel or any of the trappings of modern-day life, the pairs must navigate their way through the very edges of civilisation, taking in vast prairies, untouched wilderness and great lakes, with only the cash equivalent of the airfare to their final destination.
Taking place against the stunning backdrop of Canada but with no mobile phone, internet access or credit cards to assist them.
The competing travellers will discover that to reach the finish line quickest and win the £20 000 cash prize, they need to rely on the kindness of strangers and use every ounce of their travel skills and ingenuity.
Race Across The World, an 8x60’ for BBC One and BBC iPlayer, produced by Studio Lambert.
