Close Calls: On Camera brings to life the stories of ordinary people who have faced extraordinary circumstances.


Presented by Nick Knowles, this series brings to life the stories of ordinary people who have faced extraordinary circumstances – emergencies, accidents and incidents.


With access to a variety of sources such as video and phone footage shot by the victims and onlookers, dramatic real-life 999 calls, and first-hand accounts from the victims and their friends and families, Close Calls: On Camera relives the split-second moments when everyday events are transformed into disasters and meets the people who lived to tell the tale.


Watch the terrifying moment that a mother and her two children are suddenly faced with a life-threatening decision when their car starts burning uncontrollably in a Safari Park lion enclosure, or witness when a day of skiing takes a terrifying turn for three friends, after one of them misjudges the track and disappears into a bottomless crack in the ice.
