Episode 6: Teenage Ice Trekker

First broadcast: on CBBC ChannelLatest broadcast: on CBBC Channel

Fourteen-year-old Jamie is thrown into the biggest adventure of his life when his dad invites him to join him on an Arctic trek. Jamie's father has an eye condition which means he will go blind in the next five to ten years, so he is cramming in as many life experiences as he can, and this time he's taking Jamie with him.

Jamie starts out with little idea of what he's getting into or why he's doing it. He's thrown in at the deep end when he joins a team of adults to trek to, and then climb, a mountain in eastern Greenland. They face 50km/h winds and minus 20 temperatures, and they must drag everything they need in pulks weighing half Jamie's body weight. The risks are enormous at the best of times, but Jamie's sulky attitude threatens to put the entire trek in danger. Will he pull through and learn to take the responsibilities needed to become a real teenage ice trekker? Show less
