ITV UK's hit television programme 'Breaking Dad' comes to Slovenia

Hit ITV series 'Breaking Dad' comes to Slovenia as part of its third season, with television personality Bradley Walsh and his son enjoying some of the country's most unique and exciting adrenaline-filled adventures. 

ITV UK's hit television programme 'Breaking Dad' comes to Slovenia

The hit show 'Breaking Dad' sees actor and presenter Bradley Walsh and his 23-year-old son Barney embark on seriously epic adventures across the globe. For the third season, which began airing in the UK in January and airs weekly on ITV, the father-and-son team hit the road together again, this time staying closer to home, as they take on all the weird and wonderful activities Europe has to offer. 

Having reached Slovenia, the pair enjoy a variety of unique adventures, from training with the Slovenian national Quidditch team in Ljubljana to meeting a beekeeper in Domzale and indulging in some apitherapy. They learn about Slovenia's obsession with beekeeping - a tradition so ingrained in Slovenian culture that the 20th of May was named as their official World Bee Day, now celebrated around the world. 

They'll also travel to the Planica Nordic Centre where they meet former World Champion Ski Jumper Franci Petek and try their hand at ski jumping. Planica is home to the world's highest ski jump (as well as the world's steepest zipline descent) and many world ski jumping records are set here. 

Finally, the pair end their time in Slovenia by exploring the underground tunnels of Postojna Caves. The 24,340m long karst cave system was carved by the Pivka River over millions of years and is where you'll find Slovenia's famous olm or 'baby dragon', a species sought out by Sir David Attenborough as part of his Seven Worlds, One Planet documentary series. 

Season 3 of Breaking Dad began on Monday the 11th of January. The Slovenia episode aired on ITV on Monday the 1st of February at 8pm. UK residents will be able to catch the episode on ITV Hub.
