The Turner Twins

The Turner Twins are British explorers who have undergone a host of pioneering expeditions to learn more about the planet. Monitoring the performance of historic clothing and equipment and their genetic and physical makeup, the two have travelled into the unknown, reaching several Poles of inaccessibility. Having rowed the Atlantic Ocean, climbed Mount Elbrus, attempted to trek the Greenland Ice Cap, and reached the Australian, North and South American and Iberian Poles, they are no strangers to danger and going where no man has gone before.
