Anyone else get this show?

They drop Les Stroud off in unhospitable locations (N. Ontario in winter, the high arctic, an island off Costa Rica, the Utah desert etc) with absolute minimal supplies ( 3 matches, maybe a bit of wire, some string, a multi-tool and maybe an axe). No food, no water. He's got to survive for 7 days and sometimes find his own way out. Good TV.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

They have a new series of that called Hardbastardman where they drop him off in places like Liverpool and Glasgow. Unfortunately though, it's not been quite as successful :(

Is there anywhere I can nominate someone to be dropped off ?

More than a few I would like to see dropped off in a sticky situation. Could be good TV

Oh that's nothing, a little wire string a multi-tool, MacGyver could make a rudimentary lathe out of it and build an airplane to fly out of wherever he's at !!

Nobody knows, the camera was always nicked within 10 seconds of getting out of the van.

I catch it occasionally while flicking through channels (usually on the Outdoor Life Network). Really entertaining stuff to watch.

Multi-tool huh? He will fly back into civilisation and into big trouble for flying with a banned implement.:ugh:
