Paddling in his kayak Steve gets first hand experience of what it's like to be a ringed seal, the polar bears favourite food, when an inquisitive bear starts to stalk Steve and gets much closer than he dares hope for.

Steve witnesses some extraordinary behaviour as he watches a rock climbing polar bear scale a huge sea cliff in search of food. With the Svalbard part of their journey finished it's off to Somerset Island where Steve goes in search of some head banging musk ox, a rather curious Arctic fox still in its pristine winter coat and also the ghostly white whale.

Venturing deep into the abyss, Steve abseils into the heart of a glacier, experiencing a cold, harsh and inhospitable world that pushes Steve to his limits in what turns out to be one of his toughest deadly challenges yet. Steve also goes in search of grizzly bears on the hunt for salmon and heads out to sea in search of a true ocean giant. Steve gets the shock of his life when a humpback whale catches him by surprise, giving him one of the closest and most thrilling whale encounters he's ever had.
S01E04 British Colombia 05/11/2013 Steve and his Deadly crew travel to the remote west coast of Canada. The cold Pacific Ocean here is alive with weird and wonderful deadly critters that are stranger than science fiction. First on Steve's Deadly wish list is the mysterious sixgill shark. Few people have seen these fearsome predators because they usually live in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean. Steve and the Deadly team rig underwater CCTV cameras to catch sight of this rare beast. Next up, Steve looks to the skies. It's a raptor's delight bird-off between the sublimely speedy peregrine falcon and the raw power of a bald eagle. Using cutting edge technology, Steve shows us these birds like never before. Last up is a toothy wolf eel and a whole host of downright bizarre predators that inhabit these other-worldly reefs.
S01E05 Yellowstone 12/11/2013 Steve Backshall heads south once more and into Yellowstone national park in the USA. This frozen wonderland is home to the continent's most iconic beasts. Top of the list is Steve's favourite animal, the grey wolf, but he will need all his tracking skills to catch up with this elusive predator. Steve's next challenge is to head into the back country to find North America's largest land mammal, the one tonne bison. This deadly defender gives Steve a much closer encounter than he had bargained for. Pushing into the heart of Yellowstone the Deadly crew discover some ingenious hunters.

S01E06 North Carolina 19/11/2013 Steve and his intrepid crew are in the backwoods of North Carolina, USA, in search of the infamous timber rattlesnake. This toxic terror has a tail that vibrates with one of the fastest moving muscles in the whole vertebrate world, which the team manage to film in super slow motion.

He also braves the icy waters of North Carolina's rivers to uncover the hellbender, a freakish and surprisingly sinister underwater killer.
S01E07 Texas 26/11/2013 Still in the states, and still heading south, Steve Backshall's journey from pole to pole takes him to Texas, home to the largest congregation of predators ever seen on Deadly. Harness and ropes in hand, Steve lowers himself into the depths of one of the most inhospitable environments on earth in order to literally hang out with a mega swarm of Mexican free-tailed bats. Above ground Steve and his team are on the hunt for the secretive mountain lion - a big cat that to date has always managed to elude him. Whilst tracking down this hard to find feline he gets wrapped up in a surprise encounter with a deadly spider and searches for a serpent responsible for more bites to people than any other venomous snake in the United States.
S01E08 California 03/12/2013 Steve and the crew make their way to California's Pacific coast for a fun-filled, adrenaline-fuelled ocean adventure. Here Steve dives with an underwater speedster, the mako, the fastest shark in the seas. Skittish by nature, and with explosive speed, getting to see one at close quarters proves to be a tough challenge. Unlike the extremely inquisitive blue shark that decides to investigate Steve up close, giving him a shark encounter he will never forget. It's not just the sharks that are curious either. The aquatic acrobatic, the California sea lion, pays Steve a visit and shows off the underwater agility that makes it such a formidable hunter.

The alligator gar is the largest fresh water fish in North America but nothing can prepare Steve for the near record-breaking seven foot prehistoric monster he reels in. Next Steve investigates a destructive force of nature - the tornado. To simulate their 200 miles per hour deadly winds, the crew fire up the engines of a fighter jet. Standing in the jet flow Steve shows how everyday objects can transform into deadly projectiles.

With a double set of jaws and piercing teeth, this true marine monster destroys the deadly bite gauge within seconds.
