In this launch episode DMC (Drummond Money-Coutts) magician, illusionist and card shark, reattempts a major feat of escapology which almost cost him his life two years ago.

This time, however, he recreates it on an epic scale whilst exploring the physical, mental and psychological disciplines required in the dangerous world of Escapology. The episode culminates with the stunt itself, filmed before a live audience. DMC is tethered by two nautical ropes to a pair of accelerating seven-ton trucks and must free himself from a pair of handcuffs, and the ropes binding him to the trucks, before they pull tight and, literally, tear him apart.
