In a brand new show, adventurer-explorer Benedict Allen tells the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his wellbeing.

Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.

‘Part of history of television’ – Mark Thompson, Former Director General, BBC

‘This is a hugely exciting venture for me. I can’t wait to travel the UK and share my experiences of some of the most testing, but also wonderfully inspiring, corners of the globe’ – Benedict Allen

The image shows Benedict reunited with Filipe, the one man 25 years ago who was prepared to accompany him to the Cocha Brava, literally "Wild Lake, " a notoriously inaccessible place avoided by the Matses people but certainly the home of 5 metre caimans and much else besides. Now the two men went again, heading even further upriver to explore properly what might live there.
