  2. Extreme is the story of athletes who go to their edge to find out what they can do. Meet Fergal Somerville ultra swimmer who thinks nothing of a channel swim or a ice water swim in freezing conditions. Fergal is a swimming mentor to those who often fear the open seas but for him a swim hat and google - and his gold lame swimming togs - is often just enough to get him in the mood to do extreme swims and some fun ones too including jumping from the bridges of Dublin's River Liffey for charity. A big-hearted swimmer with a big appetite for swimming challenges.

  4. Ultra runner and adventurer John O'Regan runs 240km at a time. Although, 15 years ago, he struggled to finish a 5km run today he takes 24 hours in his stride . He has ran ultra marathons on each of the seven continents from the draining heat of the Sahara to the ice cold, sub-zero conditions of the North Pole, John has experienced it all and in his own words, "I've done more in the last ten years of my life, than I have probably done in the first 30".

The documentary is produced by Athena Media and presented by Ciaran "Kipper"Maguire. It is made with the funding support of the BAI Sound & Vision Scheme which is funded by the TV licence fee.
