LIVING CHANNEL – Fridays from 28 August, 10.30pm

Simon Reeve (Equator, The Tropic of Capricorn) leads a team of young journalists to some of the most spectacular, far-flung countries in the world, uncovering fascinating stories along the way. Shot like a classic travelogue, this is an accessible, exciting current affairs programme. Set against a backdrop of mountains, deserts and jungles the journalists present intimate, informal stories mixed with humour as well as exposing important issues of injustice, environmental decline, war and political conflict.
