2 DMAX program Program week 23 until Saturday: 10 am Out of control. Attack by an octopus A shark attack in the open sea, the bite of a poisonous snake or even a hungry tiger about to jump - attacks by wild animals have always been among those worst nightmares of mankind. The new documentary series "Out of Control" shows dramatic original recordings of such encounters, which can very quickly end fatally. Almost all of the frightening images were created by chance by amateur filmmakers, cell phones or surveillance cameras and document attacks after mostly unexpected encounters with predators. Eyewitnesses and victims from Alaska to Thailand tell of the terrible experiences they had to experience firsthand. Tzonnie Narrows, British Columbia: Doug Pemberton and colleague Danny Mauro go diving on Canada's Pacific coast. First of all, everything goes according to plan on the trip to the bottom of the sea - until Doug and his friend encounter a giant Pacific octopus at a depth of about 30 meters. Something about the behavior of the two deep-sea divers must have frightened the octopus, because all of a sudden the animal behaves extremely aggressively. The octopus wraps its tentacles around Doug Pemberton's head and sucks on his diving mask. The diver's life is in acute danger. 6:55 am 8:50 am Houston Animal Police Episode 10 The oil city of Houston is the fourth largest city in the US and actually a place with a high quality of life.

3 12:15 p.m. Black Gold Separate Ways In west Texas they toil their way through the scorching sun day after day - but for most of them no other job is an option. In the new documentary series "Black Gold", DMAX shows the strenuous and dangerous everyday life of American oil workers who are looking for the richest deposits in the "Lone Star State". In their hunt for the valuable raw material, the crews on the rigs engage in sweaty head-to-head races with the competition. The business is fiercely competitive and it costs millions to mine deep underground. For this reason, everything is required of men. Under constant time pressure they fight their way meter by meter into the earth's interior, where they suspect the valuable mineral resources. Although the toxic gases released can be life-threatening, the men take every risk. If they find what they are looking for, they will be faced with a lot of money. It's six in the morning. Pee Wee and his crew arrive on the derrick on time for duty. The driller was leaked information that Walter Smith - his boss's right hand man - would shortly inspect the rig to see how the men were making progress. The oil workers have now reached a depth of 3100 meters. So it's not far to black gold. But the team is still behind on schedule, and Pee Wee takes the whip: the foreman wants to prove to his financier that he has given the right man responsibility for the multi-million dollar project. 1:15 p.m. The used car professionals - New shine for old boxes Mercedes G463 Two true Englishmen have set themselves the goal of rearranging the world of used cars: There is nothing for negotiation expert Mike Brewer and professional mechanic Edd China Better than making a lot of profit from apparently inferior boxes. With a fixed budget, the two car experts go in search of particularly profitable offers. The best are real gems that have already been around for a few years: Porsche 924, VW Golf GTI, Mercedes Benz 230E or Ford Capri are exactly to the taste of car freaks. Regardless of whether it is a newspaper advertisement or an internet auction - the used car professionals browse the entire market until they have found the right body. While Mike manages the finances, Edd shows how to professionally and, above all, profitably spruce up a used vehicle. For hobbyists and future car dealers, the used car professionals provide an invaluable tutoring lesson, when racing driver Jackie Ickx won the Paris - Dakar rally with the Mercedes G-Class. Which is not really surprising, because the car is still considered one of the world's best off-road vehicles. Whether icy temperatures or the worst muddy soil: the G-Class gets through everywhere! Older models of the off-roader, originally developed for military purposes, are now being traded at enthusiast prices. Unfortunately - from the perspective of the used car professionals - this makes it difficult to find a real bargain. After extensive research, Mike discovered a very promising model: built in 1993, neat service booklet, painted black - that fits so far! However, the engine already has more than kilometers under its belt and the steering also seems to be defective. With the euro, the price is clearly set too high. 2:15 p.m. Tuning alarm! Jo pimps on a horse cure for the off-roader. They transform off-the-peg cars into crazy one-offs and get the best out of their customers' average bodies. Germany's coolest tuners are breaking new ground when it comes to refurbishing ordinary station wagons and coupés. While tuning fans had to bring their cars to the workshop for a few extras or a new look, boss Joachim "Jo" Scholz and his guys turn into "Tuning Alarm - Jo pimps up!" Now turn the tables: The passionate screwdrivers transform an old fire engine into a rolling workshop - and go on trips through Germany with a welding machine and lifting platform. Every stop a new car. Every car a new challenge. Crazy tuning actions, as well as the charming Berlin snout of Jo, Timo and Charly, in addition to the skills of the two airbrushers Jörn and Bolle, not only ensure a good mood on site. In the far north of the republic, in St. Peter-Ording, a new order awaits the auto tuners from Berlin. This time Jo, Timo and Charly take an old Cherokee to their breasts, which they give a fat two-pipe exhaust system, sporty suspension springs and stylish aluminum rims in a professional manner. Then the rusty Ami sledge is completely repainted and visually spiced up with maritime details by the airbrush artists Jörn and Bolle. With the right tuning spare parts, the Berlin cracks turn every rust gazebo into a work of art. 3:15 p.m. Die Modellbauer Episode 24 They build monster trucks, tinker with kerosene-fueled jet jets and screw on speed boats up to 120 kilometers per hour - around a million model builders set sail every weekend with true-to-life replicas and start the engines their planes or start the powerful engines of their racing cars. Model making is more popular than ever in Germany. Hobby hobbyists and professional builders invest countless hours of work and thousands of euros in order to fulfill their childhood dreams true to scale as captains, pilots or racing drivers. For envious looks from the competition and a successful appearance on the maiden voyage, the handicraft freaks spare neither effort nor expense. And when the mini-runabout sets its first best time on the racetrack, or the replica truck delivers its first load, the fun really begins. The small works of art can not only hold a candle to their original models visually, but are usually also fully functional. DMAX looks into the workshops and handicrafts cellars of the model building cracks and shows what Germany's construction experts are capable of. Kay has been building model airplanes since he was 14 and is currently working on an Agusta 109 helicopter. In the original, the eight-seat helicopter is used for both civil and military purposes. Kay's 1: 5 scale replica is particularly impressive because of its enormous size. The plane is almost 2.40 meters long. René grew up modeling and turned his hobby into a profession. So-called functional models are his specialty. Together with his colleague Holger, he is currently designing a roll-off tipper that has complex hydraulics. Roman's passion is speed. The model maker has a soft spot for racing boats and has even won a world championship title in his discipline. His latest project is a sports hydro powerboat that can go up to 100 km / h. 4:15 pm The omnivore - This is how the world tastes San Francisco Did you know that Eskimo ice cream tastes like fish and that iguanas with dumplings are considered a delicacy in the Caribbean? No? Then you have come to the right place with "The All-Eater - This is how the world tastes". Because Andrew Zimmer, food tester with taste buds made of steel, takes you on a journey to the world's most exotic delicacies in this documentary series. Pickled elk noses and reindeer pizza in Alaska, shark sandwiches in Trinidad and Tobago or deep-fried duck feet in New York's Chinatown - Andrew won't stop at anything to get to know the culinary peculiarities of other countries. And while the vernacular says: The eye eats too! Andrew modifies this saying slightly - and the eye eats too. What in our latitudes often triggers gagging is valued as a real treat in the Orient. The hardcore eater can taste a few lamb's eyes and push a stingray afterwards. We wish you bon appetite! Mealworms for breakfast! Insects are the purest organic food, low in calories and carbohydrates, full of protein and vitamins and very inexpensive. That's why art professor Phil doesn't raise cattle or pigs on his farm, but rather beetles, crickets and caterpillars. When they are fat enough, the crawfish end up in the saucepan. Andrew Zimmer in San Francisco is also served crispy larvae buffers and juicy cricket empanadas. Then the all-eater dives into the icy water of Bodega Bay and tries his luck at snail catching. The muscle meat of the abalone, cut into wafer-thin slices, is an absolute delicacy. Provided you can get to the beasts.

4 5:15 pm (EA) BBQ Pitmasters - The Grill Masters Episode 9 Sizzling until the doctor comes. Crispy turkey legs, tender ribs and juicy beef brisket - when the barbecue season in the USA reaches its peak, the country's most experienced barbecue luminaries polish their "smokers" and professional barbecue stations to a shine and prepare for the upcoming competitions. Because at championships like the American Royal Open in Kansas City or the "Diamond State Championships" in Delaware the BBQ cracks fight for prize money of up to US dollars per tournament and determine the only true champion. Whose chicken filling is the most sophisticated, which spare ribs are particularly crispy and which spice mixture makes the small but decisive difference? The new documentary series shows America's best grill masters in action. The Kingsford Cup is all about dollars in prize money. That is why the jury only consists of recognized experts to evaluate the skills of the BBQ cracks. The teams have six hours to prepare, grill and serve their spare ribs. Then the big showdown follows. 6:15 pm The survival duo: Two men, one goal In the swamps of Brazil Their great common goal is: survival! But that's about it with the similarities in the survival duo. Only rarely have two such different people been so dependent on each other as Cody Lundin - a staunch vegetarian and eco-freak - and his partner Dave Canterbury, a former special forces instructor at the US military.Where Cody is looking for harmonious harmony with nature in the wilderness, Dave clearly emphasizes the second part of the word in the upcoming fight for survival! On their trips from Asia to Peru, to the "Valley of the Volcanoes", to lonely islands or to the caves of Belize, guys with completely opposing worldviews meet who are forced to make common cause. And the two should really pull together: In addition to very sparse equipment, the survival dream team is only allowed to use aids that are currently in their pockets. And what should you do with cigarettes or condoms in the jungle of Laos? In the heart of Brazil lies one of the largest wetlands on earth. The Pantanal is almost ten times the size of the American Everglades and has hardly been developed to date. In the midst of this huge swampy landscape, the survival duo starts their latest survival trip: Equipped with a machete, an empty water bottle, a magnesium stick to make a fire and some sewing kit, the two wildlife enthusiasts are on the lookout for a dry place to sleep for the night, because in the knee-deep water is teeming with alligators and venomous snakes. 7:15 pm Catch of Life - Alaska's most dangerous job A new adventure They brave the most violent forces of nature and risk their lives year after year in icy storms off the coast of Alaska: the crab fishermen in the Bering Sea. Your job is one of the most dangerous in the world. In their hunt for the coveted prey, the rough fellows do not stop arctic temperatures, monster waves or hurricanes. The die-hard sailors seem born for one of the last adventures of our time. And the prospect of making thousands of dollars in just a few weeks unleashes additional energies. After a successful fishing season in the northernmost marginal sea of ​​the Pacific, a small fortune awaits them - reason enough to accept extreme hardships and risks. Around 90 men have lost their lives fishing for king crabs in recent years. But the proud crews of the "Northwestern", the "Wizard", the "Time Bandit" and many other crab boats do not shy away from the danger of death either. The documentary series, which was awarded the "Emmy", goes into its eighth season and shows breathtaking images of the battle with the elements. Fire alarm on the "Time Bandit"! The boats are still in the harbor, there is already the first emergency. The excitement subsides quickly, however, because the whole thing was just a weird welcome from colleagues. Some crew members from the fleet had snuck up on deck at night to scare the other boys off. This is how it works among shrimp fishermen: You respect yourself, but you also like to wipe yourself off from time to time.

They are the eyes and ears of the US Navy and peek out from behind enemy lines - the missions of the American "Recon Marines" are therefore extremely dangerous. The requirements for applicants for the elite unit are correspondingly high. In a three-month "basic course for reconnaissance" the soldiers are subjected to demanding endurance tests. Under extreme drill, the "Special Forces" aspirants have to prove their suitability for special military tasks. In Coronado, California, they march on the beach for miles, swim in full riot gear in the ice-cold ocean and abseil down from helicopters in rough seas. 11:15 am Life on the tightrope Upside down into the depths Nikolas Wallenda is fearless and a daredevil.

To prevent overfishing of the red king crab, Alaska's fisheries authorities have halved the permitted catch quotas in the Bering Sea. This decision turns the coming season into a gamble for the ship's crews. The captains now have to decide: Either they argue with the other crews about the greatly reduced population or they switch to the blue king crabs higher up in the north, where the weather conditions are even more extreme. For skipper Scott Campbell on the Seabroke, the case is clear: he had already ventured very far with his ship last year and achieved great success with it. That is why he and his men are once again taking full risks. 00:00 Uhr The Treasure Hunters - Gold Rush in Alaska Up to the Pain Limit The Wild West was yesterday, but the gold rush is back.

Real adventurers won't let themselves get down! Todd Hoffman and his comrades make a second attempt in Alaska: The treasure hunters had sold their property in order to acquire mineral rights near the Canadian border and look for gold there. But her hope for fame and fortune was not fulfilled despite the hardest work. They - like many others - were denied the big, all-important find. It was only shortly before the final bankruptcy and a few days before the onset of the icy winter that the men came across a gold vein on the secluded claim. But it was too late. The weather was far too bad for further digs in the frozen ground. Spring has now arrived in Alaska and the tough guys are testing their luck again. Giving up is out of the question for them. At Porcupine Creek, her fate will finally be decided. The gold prospectors are facing sweaty work: The entire area has to be cleared before Todd Hoffman and his crew can remove a two-and-a-half meter deep layer of frozen mud at the new prospect. Only then do the men have a chance to stumble upon gold-bearing soil. Under normal circumstances, this work would take almost a month, but with the coming winter, the team only has half the time at most. In the old pit on the Klondike River, the adventures struck rocky ground and can no longer work there. It is precisely in this delicate phase that the excavator goes on strike.

It was only shortly before the final bankruptcy and a few days before the onset of the icy winter that the men came across a gold vein on the secluded claim. But it was too late. The weather was far too bad for further digging in the frozen ground. Spring has now arrived in Alaska, and the rough fellows are putting their luck to the test again. Giving up is out of the question for them. At Porcupine Creek, her fate will finally be decided. In the past seven weeks, the men moved around 7,000 tons of earth on their claim on the Klondike River. But so far the yield has been disappointing: 28 ounces of gold worth dollars are not even enough for the treasure hunters to cover their expenses. In order for the crew to make a profit, around 70 ounces are still missing. That is why all hopes now rest on the new prospect. If Todd Hoffman and his comrades quickly find gold-bearing rock there, the company could still be profitable.
