See below for more on these programmes:

Naked And Afraid

In Naked And Afraid we look at what happens when you put a naked man and woman in one of the world’s most remote regions. Following the success of the first season, the show starts on Tuesday, 10 March at 22:00, taking six more couples from all walks of life and leaving them stranded in extreme conditions.

This won’t be their only worry as couples can only take along one item of their choice, have to arrive unclothed and must survive on their own for a full 21 days. These brazen and bold individuals will need to get acquainted with each other and their new surroundings very quickly, forcing them to question and test everything they may think they know about their acquired survival skills and instincts.

Will the nude castaways have the brains and brawn to endure the harsh conditions they face, or will the challenges prove to be too overwhelming? Watch as each couple battles the elements, each other and their own inner weaknesses to see who will triumph over the terrain or fail under the force of nature.

Guinness World Records Unleashed

After years of delighting, astonishing and amazing readers with their book of incredible achievements – all the record-breaking action is finally on television in Guinness World Records Unleashed premiering on Wednesday, 11 March at 20:00. Watch as aspiring record-setters take their shot at immortality with some of the most awe-inspiring and head-scratching stunts ever witnessed.

Record attempts featured include candle swallowing, hammering with the head, arrow catching whilst blindfolded, most sausages swallowed in a minute, and the fastest traverse of a greased pole. Some of these marvels must be seen to be believed!

Fast N’ Loud

The popular high-octane series returns with a brand new collection of hot-rod escapades. In each episode, motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufmann search the far-flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas.

Highlights of Fast N’ Loud include the duo picking up a dirt-cheap rust-bucket Apache and restoring it with their own special design touches in time to make a profit at auction, and a wily mature car seller who will only sell at a price that suits her. But time is money at Gas Monkey Garage, and the quicker the duo finish their cars, the sooner they can put them up for sale.

Can these maestros get the motors back on the road in time for the next auction – and will it be worth the effort? Don’t miss this premiere on Friday, 20 March at 20:00.

Explore the mysteries and extraordinary abilities of humankind this March, only on Discovery Channel (DStv 121).
