Andy Torbet Operation Iceberg

Andy Torbet is an extreme adventurer, presenter and zoologist. Part of the team on the BBC’s Coast programme, his new show Operation Iceberg launches in September on BBC Two. Andy Torbet is the expedition’s ice climber and ice diver.

After completing a degree in Zoology he spent 10 years in the British Forces as a Bomb Disposal Officer, Diver and Paratrooper on operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia and Kosovo. Since he left the Forces he has presented on programmes including Coast, Landward and The Adventure Show.

As well as his own adventure and exploration projects and stunts Andy has just completed presenting for the 7th series of Coast. After his specials on free diving around Scotland were so well-received by BBC’s Landward viewers he has been tasked with producing a special on sea-kayaking. His self-produced film on a solo cave diving project in the Cave of Skulls was also aired on the BBC’s Adventure Show.

On Operation Iceberg, Andy will be collecting samples for the team and exploring the glacier and iceberg’s most inaccessible places.


Operation Iceberg will air in September 2012 on BBC Two.
