In this exciting series, daredevil Bear Grylls seeks out extreme survival challenges in some of the most inhospitable places on earth. From hair-raising drops into the infamous Viper Pits on the Camino Reale in Panama to disembowelling a dead camel to seek food and shelter in the Sahara, facing his biggest fears as he fights his way out of crevasses in Patagonia to surviving the extreme cold of Siberia, Bear’s a mine of information on how to get out alive. And there are plenty of gut-wrenching eats as he snacks on everything from a scorpion to a vine snake, grubs and bugs, roots and shoots. As he parachutes into the jungle, drops from a helicopter just feet above a towering sand dune, abseils, climbs, swims, rafts and paraglides, expect some high-octane adventure and some hair-raising moments as he tackles the extremes of rain forest, snow and ice fields, tundra, steppes and mangroves.

Bear Grylls - What a lad. Anyone who can eat a zebra carcass deserves my respect.
He's such a legend
I love this programme, much more action than other similar shows. My personal favourite bits are when he eats a disgusting, probably-diseased creature from under three inches of mud within the jungle floor. Lovely.
