Modern life can be relentless and stressful, so much so that many of us dream of starting anew. Former covert military man and intelligence officer Brett Hines and his family intend to do just that, having transitioned from living under the modern trappings of America to forming their own way of life in the mountains of Tonasket, Washington. They are now two years in, having used survival and security techniques Hines developed in the military, in intelligence, and later as a private contractor. They’re self-sufficient, but the 10 family members still depend on each other to make it through the harsh conditions, and this series intimately documents their journey, including footage they have shot themselves over the years.

As the modern world becomes progressively automated and mechanised, it’s easy to grow further removed from the way things are made and how they’re done. How Do They Do It? returns to uncover the miraculous feats of engineering that underpin life in the 21st century. Many items that make up the modern world, often the result of highly sophisticated engineering and production processes, are taken for granted. This fascinating behind-the-scenes journey delves deep into the production of essential contemporary items.

Jeremy Wade’s Dark Waters

From Monday, June 17, 10pm

Fisherman and adventurer Jeremy Wade has spent decades hunting river monsters in the most remote waters on the planet. With unrivalled skill and a healthy dose of luck, Wade has caught nearly all the suspects. But, there are plenty more fish on his bucket list, each with mysteries of their own that he’s determined to solve. Now, Wade is heading to un-fished territories on a quest to hook them from the deep and reveal the secrets hidden in these dark waters. He begins his journey in a land dominated by rock and ice: Alaska. Here, one species of fish, the king salmon, appears to be missing. Where has it gone and why?

Crab-fishing remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, and only the bravest, toughest individuals can navigate the turbulent Bering Sea. Deep in these frigid waters lurks the highly lucrative, and often elusive, king crab, and the crews of Alaskan fishermen at Dutch Harbour are ready to hit the open waves. In the most competitive season yet, the fleet races to find the hoard as the captains battle each other and the treacherous Bering Sea to claim their share of the bounty.
