Remote Trauma are excited to have been chosen by the production team on this years’ even more extreme, Peking (Pekin)Express for M6 in France.

A dozen teams of two set off the most outrageous race of their lives. The contest begins in Kuching in the jungles of Borneo, moving thousands of kilometres north to the Philippines eventually reaching urban Tokyo.

RT were their first choice to provide safety and medical support during this epic filmed competition crossing a variety of hostile environments and with a very respectable €100K prize for the winners.

Mutiny - hell on the high seas!

Following the course of Captain Bligh's 1789 epic survival voyage, SAS: Who Dares Wins chief instructor Ant Middleton leads a crew of ordinary men in a dangerous recreation of this event.  Yes of course the risk and safety was taken care of by us! who else has the experience.  The multi-challenge brief was unlike anything we've undertaken in the past with the support vessel staying well back from the small boat so as not to break the 'bubble' of drama unfolding on a daily basis. The risks included drowning, injury, exposure, trench rot, wounds, infection, sharks and much more that we shouldn't list for fear of a spoiler alert!  

That Fletcher Christian had a lot to answer for!
