It promised to stretch reality television to the limit: one man pitting his wits against the Yukon wilderness with just a camera for company.But hopes for an epic three-month contest between man and nature were dashed when adventurer Ed Wardle failed to go the distance.Seven weeks after striding out into the rugged forests of western Canada armed with a shotgun and a fishing rod, Mr Wardle had to be airlifted back to civilization suffering from starvation.

Picture 7-32

Just looking at his gear tells me he was no expert, he wanted to look cool, he was not at all practical. The location he was in should have provided plenty of game, and other food to sustine him for three months. Where do they get these guys?

    They would have been better off sending any old grizzled retired SAS trained by Lofty Wiseman. Compared to Wiseman’s DVD, even Survivor Man looks pretty lame.
