ALONE (Series 2)
Premieres Wednesday July 13 at 20:30Alone is the boldest endurance experiment ever attempted. In a brand new series, ten men and women will enter the wilderness carrying only what they can fit in a small backpack. They will be alone in harsh, unforgiving terrain with a single mission: stay alive as long as they can. These men and women will hunt, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown and document the experience themselves. No camera crew. No producers. At stake is US$500,000 for whoever lasts the longest. It is the ultimate test of human will.

BILLION DOLLAR WRECK
Wednesdays at 19:40
Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. Republic, a famed White Star liner, set sail three years before her sister-ship Titanic, and met a similar fate. Rumours spread of a precious cargo, but Republic has kept her secrets for over a century – until now. Billion Dollar Wreck follows life-long treasure hunter and author, Martin Bayerle, who has devoted over 35 years of his life researching the Republic and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins – a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy. In 1987, Martin raised millions of dollars for an expedition to recover her gold, but came home empty-handed. The failure left him broke, embroiled in lawsuits, estranged from his wife and jailed for voluntary manslaughter. Despite this, Martin’s obsession with Republic only grew stronger. Now, with the help of his son, Grant, Martin is returning for one last treasure hunt. Armed with three decades worth of research, he is convinced he knows the precise location of the gold.
