No food, no tools and no camera crews - welcome to truly extreme survival.
Former British Army Captain Ed Stafford is undertaking an extreme survival challenge. The first person ever to walk the length of the Amazon River, he ll be washed up naked and alone on a desert island, south east of Fiji, with only his brain, bare hands and a camera to keep him alive. He'll take no food, water, clothes, knife or tools. It's a daunting challenge, and not one that anyone has attempted before.
Man can only last three days without water and three weeks without food, so from the moment he arrives the race is on to stay alive. Ed will have to use what the uninhabited island has to offer, and his common sense, to find what he needs to keep alive and healthy for 60 days. He must master the island and his fears to find food and water, make fire, build a proper shelter, and progress from mere survival to the point where he could stay forever.
Filmed entirely by Ed himself, there's never been a more authentic survival series on TV.
Ed Stafford is known for holding the Guiness World Record for walking the length of the Amazon River, an achievement described by Ranulph Fiennes as "truly extraordinary . . in the top league of expeditions past and present"
