Join adventurer and explorer, George Kourounis, as he travels to the edges of civilization, visiting the most remote places on Earth. Communities, cultures at risk of vanishing forever.
To the Ends of the Earth brings you stories about people’s indomitable will to survive against all odds in the most extreme conditions on the planet. This adventure series is part cultural experience and part epic exploration of places on the edge of human inhabitability. In each episode, viewers visit virtually impossible to reach locales and learn what it takes to survive, and even thrive, in the most harsh, remote or endangered spots on Earth.
Host George Kourounis has spent years traveling to many of the most inhospitable places and obscure countries in the world and specializes in documenting environmental extremes and the people who live in them. Never afraid to jump in with both feet, he brings his own perspective as an outsider as he becomes a member of these communities for a brief period of time.
Many of these locations serve as a warning to us of the environmental consequences of rampant development and disregard for our impact on the planet. These communities are the “canary in a coal mine” for such issues as climate change, sea level rise and pollution. But they can also serve as inspiration, showing how people are able to persevere in the bleakest of places, the harshest of climates, and even turn things around.
This series combines stunning cinematography, exotic locations and exchanges with some of the most unique people in the world. The hardships and dangers of these hostile places make To the Ends of the Earth the most compelling half hour on television. We are reminded of our fragile relationship with the planet we call home and lifted up by all its possibilities.
