New series Escape continues with it’s second episode airing on Sun 8 Oct at 8.00pm on Channel 4. In a remote mountainous region, survival expert Ant Middleton and five of the UK’s best engineers are stranded in a simulated crash site, replicating a landslide that has caused several vehicles to fall into a deep canyon.
The engineers, three men and two women, must salvage parts from the wrecked lorries and cars to build a machine powerful enough to drive them up out of the steep canyon and escape across the mountains to safety. The team are highly skilled in variety of engineering disciplines; aeronautical, marine, mechanical, Formula One racing, and a car mechanic with one arm. The engineers are confident they can overcome both the harsh environment and the engineering challenges, but as the climate takes its toll, physically and mentally, the reality of what they’re facing starts to bite.
