View Full Version : "Survival" returns
Survival of the fittest as ITV wildlife show returns
ITV's veteran wildlife show Survival is to return to the broadcaster after a gap of more than 10 years, with wilderness expert Ray Mears as host.
The show, which originally launched in 1961, will return to ITV1's primetime schedule next year for a new series.
interesting. i wonder does this mean he wont be making stuff for the bbc anymore.
I used to like the Survival programmes on Anglia TV, they were produced by Collin Willock a great countryman, and co author of one of my favourite books, The Punt Gun Adventure, Jack Hargreves was the other author, they were good mates.
Anglia also used to make a programme called Look Stranger which was very good as well, I remember seeing a programme on Kenzie Smith, and old fowler/poacher/guide.
Had a great influence on me as a kid.
Wish they would make programmes like this again
Will have to look out for that do you know when it's going to start?
cheers for the heads up..
Interesting. Adverts could spoil the programme but I'll deal with it! I reckon Bear grylls should reconsider his programmes and try an educational survival series with kids much like Eddi McGhee did back in the 80's. I think it would be muh better for his image, his current programmes remind me of this clip from YouTube!
