Production began last month on RISK FACTOR, a one-hour POV doc for TVO and Canal D that explores how we assess risk in our daily lives and whether we can do it better. Producer-director Robert Lang finds out through encounters with risk experts from many fields, among them a back country extreme adventurer, a statistician, a nuclear physicist, a medical doctor and avalanche rescue specialist.

We went out with the Parks Canada Avalanche rescue team and their rescue dog:
Yes, that’s producer-director Robert Lang in the blue jacket and glasses!
We also spent time with Will Gadd – the adventurous ice climber and paraglider who cheats death in extreme situations around the world.
