Ed Stafford: Left for Dead
Ed Stafford tackles some of the planet’s most extreme environments to find out what it’s really like when you’re lost, alone and desperately searching for a safe route back to civilization. On the move without food, it takes just 10 days for the human body to start to shut down. So that’s how long Ed is giving himself to escape. Ed travels alone and on foot, so he must be tracked from afar by a safety team - but if he gets into serious trouble, there’s no guarantee they’ll reach him in time in such hostile landscapes. Using only natural navigation, Ed relies on his wits and survival skills to make split-second decisions as he travels without basic survival gear. He has no map, compass, knife, camping equipment, food or water – just his camera kit to document each journey.
