Ed Stafford: First Man Out

Channel: Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Reality, Adventure, Nature

Survivalist and explorer Ed Stafford faces off against the planet's top survival experts in a real-life race to get out of Asia's most hostile environments.

From the tangled wilds of Borneo's crocodile-infested mangrove swamps, to the deadly sandstorms and extreme dehydration of the Gobi Desert, these locations are as tough to survive as anywhere on Earth.

Equally as tough is the competition, as Ed goes head to head against former British Royal Marines, South Korean special forces, endurance athletes and survival instructors. Ed may be able to survive almost anywhere or anything, but so can these extraordinary people.

With speed as important as survival, who will be the first to escape these lethal landscapes?

Louis Theroux: Altered States - Choosing Death

Channel: BBC Brit (DStv 120)
TX Time: 22h15
Genre: Documentary

As the final episode in the three-part series, Louis Theroux heads to the West Coast of America to explore the ramifications of 2016's Aid in Dying legislation that allows a person to take a prescribed cocktail of drugs that will result in their death.

Terminally ill people who meet certain criteria can take the lethal medication wherever and whenever they want, without further medical assistance.

But even for those who want that option, being given complete autonomy over your own death can raise complex questions, making it impossible to choose the right time. And what of those who don't meet the law's requirements?

Louis speaks to some who are looking at extreme measures to end their own or other's lives.
