#1 - Ed Stafford: Left For Dead

Explorer, adventurer and survival expert Ed Stafford faces a brand new challenge in "Left for Dead". Dropped in to a different remote location each episode, Ed has up to 10 days to reach a rendezvous point, meet his extraction transport and get out alive. If he doesn't make it he faces even more time in isolation, the humility of calling in team support and the embarrassment of failure! This incredible new series sees Ed battling extreme environments around the world - think subtropical forests, dry deserts and uninhabited mountains. Ed has quite literally been dropped in the wilderness with a camera and no survival kit, and has just 10 days to reach human civilisation. With nothing but his wit and will about him, he must rely solely on his survival instincts.
