The Summer of Adventure Program Lineup

Summer of Adventure includes the following exciting programs. Check your local listings for broadcast times and dates.

  • The Story of China explores the history of the world’s oldest continuous state, from the ancient past to the present day. Home to more than a billion people, China is an emerging superpower. To understand it is to know its history. Traveling across the vast country, Michael Wood explores the landscapes, peoples, stories and cultures that have helped create China’s distinctive character and genius for more than 4,000 years.
  • Big Pacific: Plunge into the Pacific with researchers and cinematographers who display the ocean’s rare and dazzling creatures in a way never before seen on television. Filmed in cinematic 4K, the program breaks the boundaries between land and sea, examining an ocean that covers one-third of the Earth’s surface, holds half of the world’s water and hides the deepest place on the planet.
  • Rare: Creatures of the Photo Ark: Renowned National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore is a natural-born storyteller. Rare: Creatures of the Photo Ark tells his story: a quest to document Earth’s species including those at risk of extinction. His 11-year “Photo Ark” project is the focus of this three-part series, which follows Sartore into the field as he captures rare species on camera — at zoos, preserves and elsewhere. Throughout Rare: Creatures of the Photo Ark, Sartore interacts with scientists and naturalists who reveal surprising and important information. He has seen first-hand that people will save the things they love. This captivating and visually stunning PBS special reveals why ensuring species’ future matters to us all.
  • Natures's Great Race: Huge groups of animals make some of the most dangerous, demanding and incredible journeys on earth. Now, new tagging technology allows teams to capture these amazing big animal migrations, while engaging the audience with individual caribou, zebra and elephant characters whose very lives are at stake.
  • Weekend in Havana: Geoffrey Baer (“10 Places That Changed America”) is the viewer’s guide on a walking tour of Havana, meeting singers, dancers, chefs and more, and focusing on people, architecture, culture and history of the Cuba just re-opened to Americans.
  • Great Yellowstone Thaw: Filmed over the course of several intense months, from deep winter to summer, this series intercuts the stories of four different animal families as they emerge from the cold and take advantage of the great thaw in Yellowstone before escaping the park’s soaring temperatures.
