Flying To The Ends Of The Earth season 2 episodes list:
The first episode finds Arthur in Siberia. He flies over a giant open-cast diamond mine in the town of Mirny and meets the miners who have toiled for years below ground. He moves on to the Oymyakon region, where local boy Aleksandr Dolzhenkov is arranging a scientific expedition to a frozen lake, but things go badly wrong when a helicopter carrying production crew crash lands on a bank of thick snow. Arthur then meets Mikhail and Tatiana Itelgelov, who live off-grid and breed Siberian horses.
Arthur Williams visits the island of Wadigi, part of the Fiji chain, as he continues the series exploring some of the planet's most remote places. Tracey Johnson has turned the island into a bolthole for the super-rich, but she only leases the island from its traditional owners - Tia Ratubuli and his family. Tia teaches Arthur to catch leatherjacket fish by hand from the coral reef. Flying on to the island of Koro, Arthur meets Marianna, whose village was recently devastated by a cyclone. On the islands of Vanuatu, flying doctor Mark Turnball takes Arthur on his rounds. Finally, Arthur attempts to land on the slopes of an active volcano.
Arthur Williams makes a journey by air across Peru, passing through deserts, mountains and jungles. He investigates new theories concerning the origins of the Nazca lines, 2000-year-old lines etched into the desert sands that some believe were created by aliens, but may actually be a map showing the location of underground water sources. He makes a risky landing in a canyon to explore a gold mine and visits a community of floating houses designed to survive the dramatic rise and fall of the Amazon.
