Race Across The World: Series 3

Editor: Simon Holmes

Studio Lambert for BBC One

Series starts Weds 22nd March 9pm BBC1


Series 3 of Race Across the World sees five teams race 16,000 kilometres across the breadth of Canada. Their skill, ingenuity and determination are put to the test as they embark on their journey without access to smartphones, the internet or credit cards. Armed with only the cash equivalent of the airfare to fly their route, the teams travel at ground level through some of the most remote regions in the world.

Simon Holmes edited Episode 2, he was keen to get involved with this one as he loves an adventure series and confirmed that this was ‘a real adventure in storytelling. Race is a massive challenge but a great show to work on, a proper exercise in character and competition.’

In Episode 2, the race to St John’s continues as the five teams leave Haida Gwaii and head into the heart of the Yukon towards the second checkpoint, the former gold rush boom town Dawson City.

Race Across the World season 3 starts Wednesday 22nd March at 9pm on BBC1.
