Expedition with Steve Backshall

(Rochester, NY) – PBS’s new 10-episode series Expedition with Steve Backshall reveals there are still parts of our planet yet to be discovered. Explorer and naturalist Steve Backshall pursues incredible journeys and world firsts — unclimbed peaks, unexplored cave systems and uncharted landscapes — setting foot where no human has been before. As the preeminent destination for engaging, enlightening and entertaining science and natural history programming, PBS continues to deliver with this series. Expedition with Steve Backshall, premieres on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV. The 10-part series debuts its first six episodes beginning January 15th, followed by the final four premiering in the spring. 

In this global series, adventurer and naturalist Steve Backshall ventures into undiscovered territory, endures extreme physical challenges, encounters extraordinary wildlife and teams up with remarkable people along the way. From free-diving in underground river systems and descending deep into the caves of the Maya underworld, to kayaking Himalayan whitewater and scaling unclimbed Arctic peaks, these expeditions push Backshall and his expert crew to the limit.
