Clipper Round the World

This 9-part TV series produced by 1080 Media TV and being distributed by BBC Worldwide to global broadcasters charts the stiff competition in the 2013-14 edition of the Clipper Race. The fight for podium places unfolds in each half hour episode from the colourful departure from Tower Bridge in London, racing between six continents over 11 months in the world’s longest ocean adventure at over 40,000 nautical miles. Key stages take the fleet to Brazil, South Africa, Australia, including the Classic Sydney-Hobart, Singapore, Qingdao – China, around the USA from San Francisco to New York via Panama and Jamaica; finally heading back to Europe via Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK finish in London.


Race of Their Lives

The highly acclaimed TV shows have been well received by international audiences and capture every twist and turn of hard competitive ocean racing which, at times, can test the crew to the limit. In ‘Race of Their Lives’ there’s an opportunity to explore why people take on the Clipper Race. It’s regarded as the toughest endurance challenge on the planet. Yet it’s undertaken by amateurs and novices: Corinthian adventurers who receive intensive training before embarking on the world’s longest ocean race. Discover the diverse range of characters who take on this huge feat of human endeavour; what motivates them and how they cope under pressure.

Hopes and dreams are on the starting line but the toughest test of human spirit is yet to come, from the crewmember who is destined to become the first Chinese woman to sail around the world, but must leave her terminally ill mother at home to achieve her dream; the professional rugby player taking a year out to tackle the toughest oceans; to a restaurateur, an executive assistant and a project manager whose Clipper Race training ensures his survival after being lost overboard in the middle of the cold Pacific Ocean.

The DVDs are not regionalised but are on PAL standard, so will not play on a US NTSC DVD player but will play on Mac or PC DVD drives.
