Nat Geo Documentaries about Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

We’re proud to confirm that National Geographic Channel will be the global broadcast partner of the official Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge films in 2016.

The content partnership will see Nat Geo premiere two documentary films this year about the transatlantic rowing race, which ran from December 2015 to March 2016. The first film, which premiered in Nat Geo People Australia in June 2016, focus on the inspirational story of the Yorkshire Rows team, formed by four working mums from the UK who had never rowed competitively before. The main programme will premiere later in the year and chart the trials, tribulation and triumphs of a few teams in the race, rowing the 3,000 nautical miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua in the Caribbean. Both films are produced by Atomized Entertainment.

The transatlantic race, which has been organised by Atlantic Campaigns since 2012, will be hosted annually for the first time in 2016, with up to 30 teams attempting to complete the arduous cross.

Over 20 broadcasters around the world aired the documentary about the previous race in 2014. These included Sky Sports in the UK, MTV in Spain, National Geographic Channel for pan Asian territories, RTL7 in the Netherlands and Eurosport in Italy and Scandinavia.

Carsten Heron Olsen, CEO of Atlantic Campaigns, said, “Not only does the partnership with Nat Geo bring the race and the entire sport of Ocean Rowing to the next level, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to show the world the phenomenal achievements of these men and women who row across the Atlantic. There is no no more prestigious home than National Geographic for these extreme yet inspiring stories of Man versus Ocean.”
