The Expanse Season 4 | 13 December 2019
This season is the first of the series to be a global Amazon Original, beginning a new chapter, with the crew of the Rocinante on a mission from the U.N. to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate.
Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilisation.
While Earthers, Martians and Belters manoeuvre to colonise Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don’t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.
The Grand Tour: Seamen | 13 December 2019
This is the first of The Grand Tour adventure specials!
Embarking on their next Prime Video adventure – and the first in a series of feature-length specials – Clarkson, Hammond and May are set to make an epic “road trip” journey across Vietnam and Cambodia. For one time only, the presenters have taken a break from four wheels and instead undertaken an ambitious journey in boats. Their adventure-packed voyage takes them along one of the world’s most iconic waterways – the Mekong Delta. Fans can expect elements of their previous classic road trips, with the trio choosing their boats in the usual way they choose their cars, with their own off-the-wall rationale, putting their own spin on their individual vessels… as well as each other’s.
This adventure across waters will see the presenters captaining three very different types of vessels. Clarkson’s ride is a recreation of a Vietnam war-era PBR (Patrol Boat River), the famed military vessel seen in Apocalypse Now. Hammond channels his inner Don Johnson by opting for a Miami Vice style speedboat, and May lives out his canal holiday fantasy dream with a classic 1939 wooden river cruiser. Their aquatic road trip involves an 800km journey that starts on the perilous Tonlé Sap Lake, and weaves its way via a series of adventures and calamities down through the Mekong Delta. To cap it all off, the climax of the film is one of the most dangerous and exciting challenges Clarkson, Hammond and May have ever endured.
