Bear on the telly.

Bear Grylls' adventures on TV
British adventurer Bear Grylls has to find his way out of some of the world's most inhospitable places, in a new series on the Discovery Channel.

Ultimate Survival is the first of eight programmes, which will also be shown later this year on Channel Four, in which Grylls "relives epic stories of human survival by putting himself in life-threatening situations".

And the Englishman's controversial transatlantic RIB adventure two years ago is the subject of another Discovery Channel documentary, entitled Facing the Frozen Ocean.

Broadcast dates are as follows:

Tuesday 14th February
22:00-23:00 Ultimate Survival
Discovery (551)
Follow Bear Grylls as he relives epic stories of
human survival by putting himself in
life-threatening situations.
(Premiere)

Tuesday 14th March

Adventurer Bear Grylls attempts to cross the North
Atlantic in an inflatable dinghy. Can he survive
5,000 kilometres of the most dangerous waters in
the world?

Is this for real?

I watched the Bear Grylls "Lost in the Rockies" episode this evening.
I have a feeling this should be a childrens show, possibly put to animation.
This Bear Grylls must believe he is a super hero. If you watch closely he contradicts himself constantly. He also seems to want the camera more than anything else. It appears he has a very high opinion of himself.

I've read some things about this gentlemen by searching the web and all I can find is "self promotion" with little substance. I would definitely not want to be stuck with him in the wilderness, especially after seeing the multiple mistakes he made while wandering in the Rockies.

This individual and this program were simply foolish.

I thought he was ex-SAS? maybe the years of anonimity have done for him and he's got that almost incurable "Ben Fogle on Castaway" syndrome where there appeared to be one lot who luvvied it up for the cmaeras (sponsorship deals abounding) and another lot of really scruffy people who did all the collar and planning and stuff.


What was controversial about his crossing? Other than there was some issue of jet boat performance.

Funny you should say that. Have you seen Toy Story?

I don't remember being there!

the controversy was that he claimed our own Alan Priddy never completed his first Atlantic crossing so many years previously without assistance. But he was a big fibber and Alan sent him a nasty letter!

Dirk you are awful .....but I like you!

I believe "Buzz" made a few calls to the Midlands on his way down the bottle...
