Margam’s deadly day out

29 September 2011

A DEADLY day out will be taking place at a top tourist attraction in Port Talbot this Sunday.

The free event – to be held at Margam Park on Sunday, October 2 – is part of the new series of Live ‘n’ Deadly – one of the popular Deadly brand TV shows.

The new series for CBBC sees naturalist and action adventurer Steve Backshall and children’s TV favourite Naomi Wilkinson head off in their Live ‘n’ Deadly trucks to a different UK location each week to enjoy amazing adventures and animal encounters. The Margam show is one of 13 60-minute programmes – 10 live shows and three special episodes.

Crammed full of challenges, dares, animals and adventure, Live ‘n’ Deadly takes viewers on an interactive journey, proving TV doesn’t have to be passive and encouraging them to try new experiences for themselves. Viewers can get involved by visiting the website during the show and throughout the week, including specially created interactive content and the ever-popular Deadly Dash game.

There’s also the new Deadly Dash 2, Deadly Scramble and one of CBBC’s most ambitious games ever – Deadly Planet – where viewers can track and film Deadly animals from around the world, then spot secret codes on TV, online and in the real world to unlock bonus levels and power-ups in the game.

The fun doesn’t stop when the programme finishes either, as every Sunday the team heads to a different UK venue for a Deadly Day Out, giving viewers the chance to get up close and personal with British wildlife, try a new adventure, and meet Steve, Naomi and a curious collection of Deadly animals.

The events are free to attend, but visitors must have a ticket to gain access. Closing date for ticket applications for the Margam event is September 25. Tickets will be allocated by random draw.
