John Lydon's Megabugs

10 x 30’ Discovery

10-part series hosted by John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols) who reveals his love for creepy crawlies. Lydon is on a mission: to find the biggest, hairiest, stickiest and most indestructible insects in the world. He goes stateside in search of the continent’s most infamous bugs, from 30-year-old tarantulas and deadly hornets, to rhinoceros cockroaches and glow-in-the-dark scorpions.

En route, John meets the crazy, colourful characters who live and work with such mega bugs daily and literally immerses himself in the world of bugs, being swarmed by killer bees and sucked by leeches along the way. Lydon believes that it’s time some of the world’s most feared bugs got the respect that they deserve and this ‘off the wall’ series uncovers some extraordinary facts about these most remarkable creatures.

“It’s like ‘The Trials of Life’ presented by Drop Dead Fred. If kids don’t love this to pieces, I’ll eat a roomful of hats.” – THE GUARDIAN
