Deadly Animal Showdowns

In each episode of Deadly Animal Showdowns, Steve Backshall looks back at two of the most memorable moments from over 10 years of filming ‘Deadly 60’, the series that took him trekking across the planet to find the world’s deadliest animals.

What to expect

Some of the moments he chooses are scary (like being stalked by a polar bear!), some are funny (like being farted on by a mountain gorilla!) and some are, quite frankly, just plain weird (like the giant, mucus-covered newt known as the Hellbender!).

Along the way we hear stories from behind the scenes and learn what was really going through Steve’s head at time. At the end of the programme he must decide which moment will be crowned the winner of the Deadly Animal Showdown – but can you guess which one it will be?
