Ace & Ace and Back2Back produced in the winter 2013 the 2x60 min. TV-show "The Man Who Doesn't Breathe" for Discovery Channel Europe.
In this two-part documentary special, four times World Champion freediver Stig Severinsen will be attempting to break THREE jaw-dropping world records requiring incredible skill, extreme physical fitness and intense dedication.
In the first episode Stig travels to East Greenland to attempt the impossible of breaking two WORLD RECORDS swimming under one meter of frozen ice. Diving on ONE single breath of air and wearing a wetsuit and monofin, but also trying without a wet suit - ONLY in his SWIMMING trunks. And if that wasn’t enough, he wlll attempt to be the first freediver to dive under an ICEBERG in the open Arctic ocean.
In the second episode Stig will attempt the most dangerous challenge yet. He will try and break his own World Record of HOLDING his breath underwater for over 22 minutes. As a warm up to his breathtaking record attempt Stig freedives with sharks and crocodiles on the unspoilt reefs of Cuba where he introduces the history of freediving, and where he gives an insight of the importance of yoga and meditation, for him to be able to break world records.
Throughout the show, Stig contributes to a whole new world of scientific research by allowing scientists to test and evaluate what happens to his body under the extreme physical and mental stress.
The 2 x 60 min. show is produced by the two production companies Ace & Ace from Denmark and Back2Back from England, and with Stig Severinsen as Associate Producer.
