That's Ed Wardle, self-effacingly at the back under the light of the projector

swamprose says:

Ed came home early (50 days) from the Canadian Yukon because he couldn't do the three months he had planned. Hilarious.

50 days totally alone is no mean achievement - worth catching the show on 4oD and watching the rushes/dailies on www.channel4.com/aloneinthewild Remember, even Terry Waite had a captor outside the cell door and could hear sounds of humanity. Psychologists have not studied total isolation beyond 8 weeks, one week more than Ed's time alone in the wild.

I apologise for my cavalier attitude. We had a similar show called Survivorman, which was very popular here. Wish I could access 4oD--not available outside the UK. I am sure Canadians would be very interested in Ed's exprerience.

No worries, Swamprose, it's just the tabloids here totally underestimated how difficult what he was doing was, both physically and mentally. You can see some dailies here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/alone-in-the-wild/articles/week-1-rushes to get a feel for the show that will be on in North America on Nat Geo later this month

I watched the last episode with tears in my eyes throughout .I think Ed Wardle is a very brave man.His family must be very proud of him

wow what an amazing programme - he was fantastic - letting viewers see humanity stripped down to our bare emotions - what an achievement - sometimes the things we set out to achieve aren't the things we achieve but we achieve other things we hadn't thought of!
