“RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS FOR RED NOSE DAY” MAY 25, 2017 AT 9 P.M.
Bear Grylls enlists acclaimed actress Julia Roberts for a very special adventure to Kenya, where the pair navigate a hazardous route through a harsh landscape of desert, canyons and rivers to deliver life-saving vaccines to a remote village before the vaccines expire. As Bear and Julia encounter the dangers and enjoy the majesty of this wild land, they know that any delay could mean disaster for dozens of local children counting on them.
After a long journey to Kenya, Roberts visits with patients and medical staff at Wamba Hospital and is given life-saving cold-chain vaccines that must be kept cold on the trip ahead. She meets Grylls and boards a bush plane, but a remote and dusty landing strip means they must jump from the moving plane before it takes off again. Forging ahead via land cruiser and on foot, the pair navigate through dense underbrush, avoid hungry crocodiles and hippos, and stay awake through the night to monitor their precious cargo and deliver it safely to the Samburu community awaiting their arrival.
The journey highlights the impact of live-saving vaccines, which Red Nose Day helps to provide to children around the world.
“Running Wild with Bear Grylls” was developed by Bear Grylls and Delbert Shoopman. The series is produced by Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures. Grylls serves as executive producer along with Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, Vittoria Cacciatore and Shoopman. (NBC)
