Extreme Wales With Richard Parks: Series 2

After the highly successful and BAFTA nominated first series, we return to Pembrokeshire, South Wales again in 2017 with our Sony A7S drone to film Richard Parks on more adventures across the length and breadth of his native homeland. The record breaking athlete takes on more challenges as he explores some of the more extreme ways to navigate around Wales – including mountain bikes, coasteering and paramotor.

In this exciting new series Richard Parks faces the unique challenges of mountain biking from border to coast across some of the remotest landscape in Wales. Richard scrambles and swims as he coasteers along some of the most beautiful coastline of Great Britain. The series finale sees Richard learning the skills required to fly a paramotor over the dramatic Welsh mountains .

His resolve to accomplish tasks that put him well outside his comfort zone is second to none. Battling the weather and the Welsh mountain terrain the new series shows the beauty of Wales and explores some of the many ways it can be appreciated.
