Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The most dangerous series on television, Ice Road Truckers has riveted millions of viewers since its debut. Now, in these dramatic specials, the cast and crew answer fans' burning questions about the show. In "Then and Now," intriguing fan questions about the history of Alaskan industry and ice road trucking are answered at last. In "Off the Ice," the truckers spill the details on what it feels like to hear the ice cracking beneath a big rig, how to avoid crashing into the freezing water below, and what it feels like to be in such tight, cold quarters. The crew reconvenes in "On the Edge" to discuss the perils of work in the extreme conditions of the Alaskan Ice Road, sharing their tactics for staying awake for days on end, expressing their admiration for the unparalleled beauty of the landscape, hearing what it's like to be a female ice road trucker, and addressing the big question: why not just fly supplies in to Alaska and save everyone the trouble?
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoThen and Now||From its geological history going back millions of years, to the origins of the indigenous Eskimos that have inhabited the land for hundreds of years, this one hour special will examine in depth the changes that have taken place in Yellowknife and the ice roads of the region over the past 75 years. We'll also survey how trucks were specifically fitted for sub zero temperatures in the 1930's, and how the mines operated in the 1940's as opposed to the way they operate now.||43:40||$1.99||View in iTunes|

The Actual Show is Better
These "specials" aren't so great. Only then and now is worth a look, the others felt forced and artificial. Save your money and get the actual episodes of the show not the "specials."
