Around the World in 8 Episodes: Race Across the Earth Returns to BBC One and iPlayer

Confirmed: BBC’s Race Across the World will return with new route and date

Race Across the World, the highly anticipated new season of this BAFTA-winning series, is set to return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Wednesday 10 April. The series will see five duos embark on a challenging race across Eastern Asia, covering a distance of 15,000 kilometers through several countries.

Starting from northern Japan, the teams will navigate through six seas and eight borders, braving the volcanic ring of fire to reach the finish line on the beautiful Indonesian island of Lombok. This year’s competitors include two mother and daughter duos, best friends, a married couple, and a brother and sister. Stripped of their smartphones, internet access, and bank cards, the competitors will be pushed to their limits both physically and emotionally.

The journey will be tough but rewarding as only one team will emerge victorious and claim the coveted cash prize of £20,000. Race Across the World is an 8-episode series produced by Studio Lambert for BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Commissioned by Catherine Catton and overseen by BBC Commissioning Editor Michael Jochnowitz, the show is executive produced by Tim Harcourt, Lucy Shepherd
