Surviving Extreme Weather

Image 1 / 2

Surviving a life threatening situation demands not only a powerful will to live, but a fair amount of luck and - perhaps most importantly - the ability to think clearly under pressure. In extreme situations, split-second decisions are crucial and plentiful. It only takes one mistake for a situation to turn fatal. ‘Surviving Extreme Weather' explores the actions of those whose clear thinking under pressure helped save their lives in the most extraordinary circumstances imaginable. Each episode will explore the act of survival by reconstructing one unbelievably true tale for the host, Troy Hartman, to experience first-hand. With help from a team of stuntmen and special effects experts, ‘Surviving Extreme Weather' will create situations that carefully approximate the real-life efforts of our survivors, from driving into an inferno to hiking through the Sierra slopes with no food or water.
