World's Toughest Fixes takes on some of the most dangerous, unique and oversized repair jobs in the world. Whether dangling from ropes hundreds of feet in the air or diving beneath a bridge with a shaky foundation, host Sean Riley tackles fix-its on a monster scale. Combining the real-life drama of big fixes with state-of-the-art CGI animation, each episode of World's Toughest Fixes illustrates in vivid detail the high-tech tools and techniques used to engineer solutions and salvage projects on a scale few of us can comprehend.


Building the Wildebeest—the world's longest water roller-coaster—is like assembling an enormous jigsaw puzzle. The Wildebeest is fitted with special magnetic motors that enable the giant coaster carts to literally float on air. After assembling hundreds of meters of this water ride, moving the giant platforms and towers that support it, and securing enormous pieces of piping, it all comes down to a few critical centimeters as the team struggles to move the last massive pipes into place.

DVD-R Format

The DVD-R is a non-rewriteable digital format that is compatible with most commercial DVD players. The DVD-R format is created with MPEG2 Variable Bit Rate Compression with stereo sound.


How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.


NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
