The National Geographic channel is taking Indians and reality shows
on a mission to the Arctic in its show Mission Artic which premiers
on 9 June and will be aired every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm,.
The show will be anchored by VJ Yudi.
show will take the top few contestants and the viewers to the unpredictable
landscape, where they not only need to survive, but excel. Subjected
to the freezing temperature and situations, the daredevil finalists
will live like Samis, the natives of arctic, surviving without modern
tools, cooking & eating whatever they can get their hands on
and sea-kayaking in freezing waters. In a final task, the courageous
contestants will race on dog sleds to plant the tricolour flag on
Arctics highest peak.
International Channels and National Geographic Network VP Debarpita
Banerjee said, "National Geographic is known for its unprecedented
access. We took our viewers inside the Vatican, the Mecca, the Rio-
carnival to name a few, and in India, inside the Indian Navy, Air
force, and last year, inside the grandeur and valor of the Indian
Army. Living up to this tradition of taking the viewer to where
eyes havent gone much, National Geographic Channel this year,
takes few courageous Indians to the terrains of the Arctic. It will
not only unfold what metal our youth is made of, it will also bring
stunning visuals and larger-than life challenges of surviving one
of the most rugged lives, right into our living rooms."
