Separating fact from fiction...
Special effects experts, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman return with another explosive series of ‘Mythbusters'.
Joined by fellow MythBusters Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, the team put popular myths and urban legends to the test, using modern science to separate the fact from the fiction.
In the brand new tenth series, Adam and Jamie put a First World War myth to the test. Can a trench corner really slow down a shockwave and save a soldier's life? The daring duo also undertake their most dangerous stunt to date when they attempt to drive a motorcycle across a lake; challenge director James Cameron to explain why characters Rose and Jack didn't share their life-raft to survive the Titanic; and investigate whether moving a dead body is as easy as it looks in the movies. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory ride a rocket powered surfboard and find out if it is possible to escape from a high rise hotel using a makeshift parachute.
Will their homemade chutes defeat gravity or leave them in free-fall?
