Plot Synopsis

Journalist Olly Steeds is out to find the truth behind some of the world's biggest mysteries. From the possible sea floor ruins of Atlantis to the uncharted heights of the Andes; from the hunt for Nazi gold to the search for the Ark of the Covenant, Olly takes viewers on heart-pounding, globe-trotting quests around the world. Olly's journeyed to 70 different countries for his adventures, including: an unexpected 700-mile walk across the Gobi Desert; being hunted down by bandits on the Chinese-Tibetan border; being chased across the Shangtu Grasslands by The People's Liberation Army; breaking his arm riding a horse across Mongolia; being imprisoned on charges of espionage; mistakenly running six consecutive marathons across the Sahara; studying kung-fu with Shaolin Monks; retrieving video tapes from a kidnapped family in Nicaragua; and leading a Royal Geographical Society Expedition to research the Grass Silk Road.
