Mission Improbable, Series 1 Episode 4 of 4

Adventure journalist Jane, long term singleton Lucy and zookeeper Amelia set off on another international adventure.

This time, Jane finds herself trying to beat that famous adventurer Marcus Wolfton across the arctic tundra in a bid to be the first and only journalist to record the voice of the last speaker of a dying language. Meanwhile Lucy finds herself trying to slow the team down so she can get up close and personal with the man himself, who's only a matter of hours behind. Amelia only has eyes for the polar bears she's hoping she'll get a chance to chat to.

During this ice cap caper, our heroes survive sub-zero temperatures, furious indigenous wildlife and a frantic game of cosmetic tennis before an encounter with an angry Inuit has them running for their lives. Will they survive? Will they beat Marcus Wolfton to the prize? Or will they dress up as nuns and make complete fools of themselves?
