What's On

National Geographic is the iconic documentary channel that will expand and blow your mind with its groundbreaking series. Nat Geo is the home to popular shows such as Air Crash Investigation, Car SOS, Wicked Tuna, Banged Up Abroad, the drama series Genius and the award-winning documentary Free Solo.

Currently showing is Fiennes: Return to the Nile, which unites Joseph and Ranulph Fiennes on an epic expediton.

Pulling them together was the opportunity to return to the scene of one of Ranulph's earliest feats – his 1959 expedition along the River Nile.

As Joseph and Ranulph travel south along the river it becomes a story of master and apprentice as Joseph is put through his paces by his older cousin. From facing deadly animals and traversing the dunes of the Sahara desert to spending a night alone inside the Great Pyramid or tracing snake-infested tomb raider tunnels to find mummified bodies.

Strap in for an exhilarating road trip laid bare for all to see as actor and explorer travel the Nile through a timeless land testing their grit, courage and determination.

National Geographic is available on BT TV along with Nat Geo WILD and many more channels.
