Sara Pascoe tracks down more of the world’s most endangered jobs in the critically acclaimed Last Woman on Earth with Sara Pascoe which is set to return to BBC Two and iPlayer for a second series from Talkback (a Fremantle label).
In a bid to become a living filing cabinet of lost skills, Sara will visit Greece, Denmark and Jordan and take on some unique jobs set for extinction in this new 3 x 60 show.
In series one the writer and comedian turned her hand to tasks including ice carving in Finland, climbing trees to pick coconuts for making sweets in Cuba and becoming a Stalin Museum guide in Georgia.
Now she’s off for new adventures, meeting more extraordinary people doing jobs that you didn’t even know existed and learning some unusual skills along the way including Lego master builder and Dead Sea lifeguard. Will they survive the unforgiving pace of the modern world, or be lost to history?
Sara said: “Having been locked indoors like everyone else through the pandemic, I can’t wait to get back out into the world to see what’s changed, what’s changing and how rare and interesting jobs are being affected. We’ve got more fascinating people to meet this series and some equally exciting adventures!”
Catherine Catton, BBC Head Commissioning Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment said ”Our audiences relished Sara’s uniquely brilliant take on the jobs, cultures and countries she encountered in the first series. Having had our plans for a follow-up delayed, we’re thrilled to be able to embark on some brand new journeys with her.”
Laura Gibson, Creative Director, Talkback, said: “After the last two years TV travelogue presenter was almost put on the endangered jobs list. Thankfully, we are delighted to say that intrepid Sara is returning to explore more countries and fascinating professions.”
