Documentary exploring some of the most inhospitable places on the planet concludes by shedding light on the lives of the Kamayura People, who reside in Brazil's Xingu Indigenous Park.

In Ethiopia, belief drives the residents of the Tigray region to climb a 400-metre mountain to reach their church. In Switzerland, the Zermatt air rescue team offers an insight into why millions of hikers, climbers and skiers visit the Swiss Alps every year, despite the risk of injury - or even death.
