Mike Dawson is the definition of an adrenaline junkie. Not only is he a former Olympian and New Zealand's best in the canoe slalom, he's also an extreme kayaker.

He speaks to Jack Tame about his award-winning documentary of his treacherous trip down Africa's Kwanza River - facing crocodiles, landmines and stand-offs with police. 

Watch Mike’s award winning documentary Kwanza - The Drowning Diamond of Angola.
