Jeremy Wade - ON TOUR - March 2014 - Book Now: www.rivermonsters.tv

Face to Face Tour

Man-sized piranhas, fish that electrocute, nine-foot river sharks (yes, river sharks) ... You've seen the programmes, now find out what it takes to deliver these outlandish creatures to your living room -- and why nobody had done it before.

Join the presenter of the global hit series River Monsters, biology teacher and angler turned seat-of-the-pants explorer Jeremy Wade, for an evening of mystery, mayhem and monster wrangling.

What do you do when something grabs your hand in a pitch-dark underwater cave? When your aircraft engine fails above the Amazon jungle? When a doctor tells you about fish boring people to death? And why is it all worthwhile? (It's even funny sometimes.)

It's also a rare chance to put your own questions. But catching Jeremy when he's not on Amazon riverboat or living in a cockroach-infested hut is just like catching a fish: you must be in the right place at the right time....

Is it safe to get in the water?...

Nearly half the world's fish species live in just 0.01% of the world's water - our lakes and rivers. Yet most people know less about what lives in fresh water than they do about the oceans.

Because some rivers are very hard to get to - and/or too murky to see into, using normal means - many of their inhabitants are rarely or never seen in conventional natural history programmes.

River Monsters takes a different approach. Biologist and fishing detective Jeremy Wade starts by examining myths and fishermen's tales, subjecting them to scientific scrutiny to separate fact from fiction. Then he homes in on his targets using a fishing line. The results are some fish of staggering dimensions and appearance, including some spectacular TV 'firsts'.

To catch up with seasons 1-4, River Monsters DVDs are available from the Animal Planet online shop (US/NTSC format). In the UK, DVDs of series 1-3 (PAL format, produced by ITV) are available from retail and online outlets.

River Monsters is produced by multiple award winning Icon Films
