Jason Mallinson is a cave diver whose exploits have led him to set distance and depth records in caves all over the world, from the deep jungle caves of Mexico to the vast dive distances of Pozo Azul in northern Spain. Jason is a member of the UK’s international cave-dive rescue team. Naturally Jason became part of the high-profile and unprecedented rescue of the Wild Boar football team from Thailand’s Tham Luang Cave. Following the discovery of the trapped boys and their coach, Jason helped carry out the daring rescue plan. Hear the real story behind this extraordinary event.
In 2018 Laura Bingham teamed up with fellow adventurers Pip Stewart and Ness Knight to take on a world first – paddling the
entire length of the Essequibo, South America’s third largest river, from source to sea. The river flows for 1,014km through remote jungle, unknown rapids and contentious gold mining camps until it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Heading out on this expedition, for Laura there was an extra factor to consider, the trip meant leaving behind her eight-month-old son Ranulph for 10 weeks.
