The Chasers Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles

Series overview

Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett and Shaun Wallace - three of the biggest brains of the quizzing universe escape the confines of the studio to embark on an adventure like no other.

In this brand-new three part series The Chasers’ Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles, we follow our three fearless brainboxes as they pit their wits against extraordinary competition as they try to answer the age old question 'Are we really as smart as we think we are?'

To find the answers, this brand new primetime series, follows our three titans of trivia as they travel the globe to take on child geniuses, great apes, and the latest AI and robot technology.

We get to see three of Britain’s best-known brainboxes as we’ve never seen them before. On this intellectual journey like no other, our cerebral celebrities question if we underestimate animal intelligence by exploring the brightest sparks in the animal kingdom. 

The Chasers’ Road Trip is produced by Boundless (part of Fremantle).
