Episode 1

Western Australia. A land forged by one of the most dangerous killers on Earth – bushfire. Here, men and women of the Parks and Wildlife Service fight a never-ending war against
this scorching enemy. They deploy the largest squadron of fire-spotting aircraft in the world, armoured bulldozers and trucks, aerial bombers. And they fight on foot. The battle is
relentless. Their adversary: a remorseless, unpredictable and indiscriminate killer. This is Bushfire Wars.

Episode 2

The most dangerous bushfire of the season continues to rage out of control. The West Australian Parks and Wildlife Service throws everything at it to cut if off but the flames are threatening to escape and go out of control. Shane Popperwell leads the charge on the northern flank, but he’s held up at every turn. Adam Edwards fights to stop the fire crossing the containment lines. On the southern flank, fixed-wing bomber pilot Nick Long has one of the longest shifts of his career as he provides crucial air support.
