Episode InformationAs wingsuiters hurtle earthwards around Europe we bring you heart stopping visuals, soul-searching interviews and, the race to crown a world champion in one of the world’s most extreme activities. Our cameras go behind the scenes to capture Base-jumping’s evolution from novelty stunt to professional sport. This happens only once. Breathtaking locations, outrageous characters and non-stop action unfold as we follow the ProBASE world tour, from the bustling city of Istanbul to the sheer cliffs of Norway and the towering peaks of Switzerland. Spectacular slow-motion footage of jumpers throwing themselves from buildings and cliffs capture the audience’s attention from the very first frame and hold it till the very last. Multi-camera angles of each death-defying leap steal your breath as athletes plummet earthwards for eternally long seconds until colorful parachutes mushroom, bursting open with a sigh of relief, leaving you gasping on the edge of your seat in breathless anticipation of the next heart stopping sequence. The action all takes place against the backdrop of the ProBASE world tour and the quest to crown a world champion in a sport so extreme that many question if it can truly be called a sport. This is the birth of a new era in the history of BASE; this is the birth of Birdmen Racing.
