The Cold War may be ending, but for CIA operative, Tom Bishop, the fight for his life is just beginning. Arrested in China for espionage, he’s to be executed within the next 24 hours, and his only hope is his mentor, Nathan Muir. Even with only one day left until his retirement at the Agency, Nathan isn’t going to leave Bishop for the wolves. Having personally recruited and trained him, Nathan’s ready to run his own little spy game operation to get Bishop back.

As he engineers his brilliant, albeit lone, rescue mission, he remembers how he recruited the young rookie in Vietnam, and their turbulent times together as intelligence operatives. But this time, this little spy game isn’t going to be a walk in the park.

World’s heaviest athlete
The human body is a resilient, versatile and adaptable machine. But it’s evolved to operate at an optimum weight. Now with two thirds of the United States either over-weight or obese, we are pushing our bodies to their natural limit. So what happens to the body when we over indulge?

In Extreme Bodies, viewers will follow Manny Yarbrough, the world’s heaviest athlete, to discover what effect the weight of 711 lbs is having on his internal organs. The programme reveals that morbid obesity can be more detrimental to the health of a man than a woman. So just how vulnerable is the American male to be caught by the fat? Extreme Bodies airs at 8 pm on November 19 on Discovery Channel.
