Abstract:

Historian Dan Snow concludes his epic adventure following in the footsteps of the 19th-century's last great gold rush. Leading a one-month expedition, he's joined by polar explorer Felicity Aston and remote environment medic Dr. Kevin Fong. Their goal: to strike gold in Canada's frozen wilderness. The team have just a few dozen miles left to cover of their nearly 600-mile journey to the gold fields. Following in the footsteps of their 19th-century forerunners, they have crossed snowy mountains, run terrifying rapids and navigated hundreds of miles of water in a replica historical boat. In tonight's episode they finally arrive at Dawson City, gateway to Klondike gold. Guided by historical accounts, the team set up a 19th-century-style mining camp in the heart of the gold fields. Using traditional methods they set about the back-breaking work of mining for gold. They'll have to use both their expertise and muscle to give them any chance of striking it rich. It's not going to be easy; they have just five days to prospect in an area that's already been extensively mined. But in a game where luck can play as much a part as experience, will they walk away having struck gold?
