BBC2 has ordered a second 3×60 series of Talkback’s Last Woman On Earth with Sara Pascoe.

In the show, comedian Sara Pascoe tracks down the world’s most endangered jobs “in a bid to become a living filing cabinet of lost skills.”

In series one Pascoe turned her hand to tasks including ice carving in Finland, climbing trees to pick coconuts for making sweets in Cuba and becoming a Stalin Museum guide in Georgia.

In series two she will try new skills including Lego master builder and Dead Sea lifeguard.

Sara Pacoe says: “Having been locked indoors like everyone else through the pandemic, I can’t wait to get back out into the world to see what’s changed, what’s changing and how rare and interesting jobs are being affected. We’ve got more fascinating people to meet this series and some equally exciting adventures!”

Catherine Catton, BBC Head Commissioning Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment says: ”Our audiences relished Sara’s uniquely brilliant take on the jobs, cultures and countries she encountered in the first series. Having had our plans for a follow-up delayed, we’re thrilled to be able to embark on some brand new journeys with her.”

Laura Gibson, Creative Director, Talkback, says: “After the last two years TV travelogue presenter was almost put on the endangered jobs list. Thankfully, we are delighted to say that intrepid Sara is returning to explore more countries and fascinating professions.”

Last Woman on Earth with Sara Pascoe (3×60) was commissioned by Catherine Catton, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. It is a Talkback production (a Fremantle label), executive produced by Laura Gibson and developed by Charlie Bennett. The Series Producer and Director is Mus Mustafa and the Commissioning Editor is Clare Mottershead.
