In north Wales, Kate climbs Wales’ tallest man-made structure amidst a storm, and at a natural burial ground, she digs and prepares a grave, discovering how our deaths can help nature.

In the first episode of the series, Kate Humble and her Welsh sheepdog, Teg, explore remote corners of north Wales. Kate reaches for the sky, amidst a storm with 50 mph winds, as she attempts to climb the tallest man-made structure in Wales to fix some loose cables on the Arfon Transmission Tower.

Next, avid walkers see rivers as a barrier, having to find a bridge or get wet, but Kate learns how to overcome natural obstacles with the novel activity of packrafting – using an inflatable canoe weighing only 1.5kg.

On the north east coast, Kate meets a pack of dogs trained to carry out wildlife conservation by sniffing out endangered species, and on the north west coast, Kate digs and prepares a grave for a new resident, who in death wants to give himself to help nature thrive. Kate experiences a moving funeral at the only woodland natural burial ground in the area.
