Against the backdrop of the Austrian Alps unfolds a spectacular adventure series with a you-are-there immediacy: Alpine Rescue brings much more than mountain-climbing thrills to TV.

The emphasis is on “rescue” as we follow the exploits of a team of dedicated doctors who sometimes don’t see eye to eye, but who agree that their priority is to save lives, whether on wind-lashed peaks or in abandoned caves. They know the mountains are unforgivable — yet they keep risking their own lives to save those of others.
