UK broadcaster Channel 4 has picked up the Arrow Media-produced travel series World’s Most Extreme (pictured).

The 6 x 60-minute series from the Live from Space producer combines user-generated content, archival footage and on-location shoots around the world to explore instances of “extreme” engineering such as airports carved into ice shelves and highways constructed along cliff faces.

The show was previously commissioned by Channel 4-owned digital net More 4 and The Travel Channel in 2014, and was also sold to National Geographic Channels International. World’s Most Extreme is to premiere on Channel 4 on April 11 at 8 p.m. GMT.

“We are delighted that World’s Most Extreme is set to air on Channel 4,” said Thomas Viner, executive producer at Arrow Media, in a statement.

“The series has done really well and takes viewers on such an incredible journey across the earth,” he added. “From the typhoon railway of India, through the world’s tallest bridge and Bolivia’s death road, it truly captures the terrifying lengths that some people will go to, just to get from A to B.”
