BBC Breakfast presenters Bill Turnbull and Louise Minchin are off on the fourth and longest leg of the Around The World In 80 Days challenge, raising money for BBC Children In Need on their way. The pair need to cover a quarter of the globe to reach America, where John Barrowman and Myleene Klass await them.

When Bill loses a crown on his tooth on the bone-rattling roads of Mongolia, they are forced to gamble their onward connection with an emergency trip to the dentist. They catch the last train to Russia with only minutes to spare.

On leaving Vladivostock, already exhausted, they board the ferry to South Korea, only to find that their reservations are not as expected. Bill is boosted to first class, while Louise is sent to steerage (fourth class). With Louise facing a night on a hard floor with 16 strangers, Bill gallantly gives up his private cabin to join his fellow traveller for the rough crossing.

Back on dry land, the two journalists explore South Korea while they wait for their container ship to America. Louise's father – a former Army major – suggested they should try to visit the border to pay their respects to the forgotten British soldiers who fought in the Korean War in the Fifties. Afterwards, they are off again and race through Seoul to catch their next boat.

Bill and Louise now face a final dash across country on the KTX – one of the fastest trains in the world – to Busan. They will be on their next mode of transport, a cargo vessel, for 10 days, journeying across the Pacific Ocean.

So far, they've clocked up 4,000 miles, but the news that they still have another 6,000 to go doesn't go down well, particularly when they realise that their route takes them across the International Date Line ... so they have to repeat a day all over again. With little contact with the outside world and just the crew for company, will they have the mettle to make it?

Around The World In 80 Days is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Inside Life – Garter Snakes Ep 4/10

Tuesday 3 November
5.15-5.45pm CBBC

Inside Life continues to go behind the scenes of the BBC Natural History Unit's landmark new series, Life, to find out just what it takes to get footage of the world's most extraordinary wildlife.

Every year, deep in the heart of Canada, thousands upon thousands of snakes emerge wriggling from their winter dens. The Life team are keen to capture this wildlife phenomenon, but are missing an integral piece of equipment; a thermal-imaging camera. In steps agent Matt.

Reptile-mad Matt, fresh from his mission to investigate how the RAF use thermal cameras to find people and animals, goes on the adventure of a lifetime as he delivers a thermal-imaging camera to the Life team on location.

Matt travels to the Canadian wilderness where red-sided garter snakes live out the winter in underground dens, emerging in the summer months to mate. Timing is crucial – if the Life team miss this extraordinary mass emergence, they will have to wait a whole year for it to happen again.
