Bear Grylls: Breaking Point sees Bear take everyday people on a journey to face their fears. He helps them tackle life long phobias including rats, spiders and insects.

This two series collection brings all the action of Deadliest Catch Series 11 and 12 together. It’s an adrenaline fuelled journey and we are along for the ride!
The 13-time Emmy® Award-winning series returns for its 11th Season and the fearless captains of the Bering Sea are back. This year they must lean on their brethren to survive. But just how far will they push their crabbing brotherhood? Massive storms, a super typhoon and new regulations will change all the rules. With great risks come even greater opportunities, and for those willing to put it all on the line, it means an even bigger payoff.
For the past eleven years, the veteran captains of the Bering Sea have carved their living in one of the world’s most dangerous fisheries, risking it all including their lives. But this year, a new generation is stepping up and claiming their seat at the table. But do they have the drive and guts that it takes to become a legend? What the young guys lack in experience, they make up for in drive and eagerness. This season, Deadliest Catch welcomes a new skipper to town. Just 23 years-old, Sean Dwyer of the Brenna A is the youngest captain ever in the history of the series. Jake Anderson takes his first full season at the helm of the Saga. Now that he’s been given a shot, he needs to prove his worth as a leader. Meanwhile on the Cornelia Marie, young skipper Josh Harris steps out of the shadows to claim his birthright on the legendary vessel once commanded by his father, the late Captain Phil Harris.
