Summary
Two modern-day New Zealand adventurers, Kevin Biggar and Jamie Fitzgerald, are facing their biggest challenge yet. They're setting off on five epic adventures to try and recreate the journeys of some of New Zealand's most iconic and pioneering explorers. But, as if that wasn't a major ask for this pair, they've decided to recreate each of the journeys by wearing the same clothes and using the same equipment as their predecessors did. It's a tough challenge and one which will see their survival instincts tested to their very limits, from trying to find a route to pass through the Southern Alps to reliving the survival story of stranded sealers marooned on the Open Bay Islands, the complete hit TV ONE series is gripping from the moment Kevin and Jamie begin their first quest. Featuring stunning locations and epic journeys across five 44 minute episodes, the visceral series First Crossings pushes Jamie and Kevin's physical and mental stamina to the limit, and will captivate viewers with its extraordinary insights into what our forefathers endured
