Marvel at groundbreaking achievements around the world as we celebrate the people who accomplished them. Meet ocean rower Mick Dawson, a former Royal Marines commando who gained recognition as a record-breaking ocean rower and explore the career of award-winning cameraman Gavin Thurston, who has worked extensively with Sir David Attenborough. We are also joined by the daughter of Helge and Anne Stine Ingstad, both of whom famously excavated L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, uncovering archaeological proof that Vikings had been to North America 500 years before Columbus.
