Daredevils: The Human Bird -- s01e01
Monday 14 September
9:00pm - 10:00pm
A series of films exploring what compels some people to risk their lives in order to push themselves to the physical
and mental limits of human capability.
Jeb Corless aims to fly down the Matterhorn in Switzerland while wearing a winged Teflon suit, before pulling a
parachute at the very last minute. Corless attempts dangerous feats such as these because of his self-confessed
death wish -- he has counterphobia, a 'pathological desire to confront fear'.
Proximity wingsuit flying involves donning a state-of-the-art Teflon winged suit, jumping out of a helicopter or off
a cliff edge thousands of feet up and flying terrifyingly close to some of the world's most dangerous mountain faces
before pulling a parachute at the very last minute. It is the closest man has ever got to his ancient dream of flight
and it is extremely dangerous. One mistake can lead to instant death.
The son of Malibu multi-millionaires, Jeb Corliss has a self-confessed death wish. As a young boy he was diagnosed
with counterphobia -- a pathological desire to confront fear. Always clad head to toe in black, Jeb has found that
the thrill he gets from leaping from the world's highest buildings and mountains is the only way to free himself from
his dark moods and suicidal tendencies: 'Through death I found my life.'
This film follows Jeb on his quest to fly down the Matterhorn in Switzerland within five feet of the jagged cliff-face.
But his journey is far from straightforward. Arrested for attempting to BASE jump off the Empire State Building,
Jeb could be facing a year in prison...
