ALASKA’S GREAT RACE – Discovery Channel (UK)
In the heart of the Alaskan wilderness the perilous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is preparing to begin. For some the goal is to win, for others just surviving the race is enough. The episodes will be aired at weekly intervals.
- Episode 1 will be on air 21 July 2009, 22:00:00 and repeated 22 July 2009, 03:50:00 & 28 July 2009, 09:00:00
- 28 July 2009, 22:00:00 – Episode 2
The mushers cross the treacherous Alaska Range. There’s drama for Mackay as his lead dog is injured and Martin Buser takes a strategic rest at Salmon River.
- 04 August 2009, 22:00:00 – Episode 3
With the Alaska Range behind them, the mushers turn their attention to rest – a strategy all of its own, whilst DeeDee is first to the half-way mark.
Thanks again to Speedy for calling me about this.
