Beyond the Pole
As the first Carbon Neutral, Vegetarian, Organic expedition ever to attempt the North Pole, Mark and Brian have high hopes of not only doing their bit for global warming, but also, if all goes well, of getting into the Guinness Book of Records.
Unfortunately, not only is this a world first: it's a first for them too. Brian and Mark have never done anything like this before.
Luckily they are followed by Steve, their hardened arctic cameraman, to follow their journey for the digital channel, Adventure Plus. That is until they shoot him.
All alone on the ice the boys are left to fend for themselves and hadn't reckoned on the polar bears, the competitive Norwegians or on Mark's rapidly loosening grip on reality.
Noone said saving the planet would be easy. But does it have to be this hard?
Beyond The Pole is Touching the Void with laughs, Withnail and I on ice. Funny and subversive, it’s the story of two men trying to find their place in the world before the end of the world. And it asks one question of us all: how far would you go to save the planet?
