A new PBS series will reveal that there are still parts of our planet yet to be discovered.

In Expedition with Steve Backshall, the explorer and naturalist pursues incredible journeys and world firsts — unclimbed peaks, unexplored cave systems and uncharted landscapes — setting foot where no human has been before.

As the preeminent destination for engaging, enlightening and entertaining science and natural history programming, PBS continues to deliver with this series.

Expedition with Steve Backshall will premiere at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15.

In this global series, Backshall ventures into undiscovered territory, endures extreme physical challenges, encounters extraordinary wildlife and teams up with remarkable people along the way. From free-diving in underground river systems and descending deep into the caves of the Maya underworld, to kayaking Himalayan whitewater and scaling unclimbed Arctic peaks, these expeditions push Backshall and his expert crew to the limit.
