    I do wonder what Ray Mears thinks of the tv programme descriptions in many newspaper tv listings now, like the ones in the Saturday Express tv supplement, that list his show as a 'survivalist' one!

    Their reviewer recently said of the new show -

    'Can you honestly think of anywhere more wonderful to sleep than the middle of the Australian desert? Yep, so can I. You'd have to be off your trolley. But that's Ray Mears all over, really, isn't it? With the greatestof respect.'

    Obviously written by somebody that doesn't much liketo get outdoors there then!

    Friday this week, for those of you with Channel 5, has a good outdoors survival film on then. It is on at the slightly bonkers time of 3.10 pm in the afternoon though, so is maybe one to set the recorder for.

    It is the great 1997 film 'Survival On The Mountain'.

    I have the dvd of this film which is quite good really. It tells the story, based on true life events, of a couple trekking in the Himalayas who fall victim to a freak typhoon! This in turn sets off a devastating avalanche. Which then leaves them both together facing a very desperate battle for survival in the trecherous mountain peaks. It is a good ifunusual fact-based adventure film.

    About time that DW's excellent thread here on tv entertainment came out for another airing I feel!

    Sunday 15th June 2008.

    BBC2 8.00pm - Ray Mears Goes Walkabout. Last episode of this very short four part series today. This time up in Kimberley looking at Aboriginal rock art etc.

    Repeated BBC 2 7.00pm on monday 16th June too as well.

    A good hour of telly I reckon. Why? Because whether you're a Ray fan or not, this is a great set of geographical interest programmes featuring art, culture, travel, history, archaeology, ethnography; in fact the full works. This is what educational tv was always meant to be like really! That is why the Royal Geographical Society gave Ray all those awards after all, just the other year! Not just because he talks about bushcraft and survival; which he does do too, actually equally rather well of course.

    Edit - And don't worry, the new shorter Ray Mears series are indeed like London Busses. Miss it and there will be another one along in a minute! The next two soon to be aired new Ray Mears follow-up series are apparently already in the can as we speak!

    Also this sunday 15th June 2008.

    ITV 1 1.00 pm - Film - Jeremiah Johnson. The great 1972 western adventure, following the life of a mountainman in the frontier country of early America. A really wonderful outdoors film that is one of my all time favourites. Great scenery and authentic adventure feel in the American backcountry. Robert Redford shines as the main star trying his best to survive as a greenhorn mountainman, and reputedly playing a character based upon real truelife old frontier lands heroes from American history.

    Trev, I have to agree with you on the value of Ray Mears programmes. In my opinion more interesting that Bear Grylls due to the fact he talks about the areas and history as well. Can't remember the name of the lady but watched the one last week about the Scottish lady shipwrecked on an island and she integrated with the locals for a few years until rescued finally. Very interesting.

    Unfortunately I can only watch them when in as I work shifts but I try my best to see them.

    Always available on the BBC I-player through your computer as 'repeats' though Simon, you know! Plus expect innumerous repeats on terrestrial tv too in the future!

    Britain's Lost World


    Thursday 19 June
    9:00pm - 10:00pm
    BBC1 London & South East 1/3

    There's something for everyone here. For lovers of scenery-rich Coast, this brings us the extraordinary landscape of St Kilda, the wildest, most remote spot in the British Isles (a six hour boat ride into the North Atlantic from Scotland). For wildlife lovers there's an incredible wealth of seabirds - fulmars, gannets and puffins, even the fluffy baby ones called "pufflings". For history buffs there are bizarre stories of the islands' population, who lived for centuries on boiled and dried seabirds for breakfast, lunch and supper, but abandoned the islands in 1930, probably fed up with the food. And for adventure fans there are dramatic sequences as Kate Humble, Dan Snow and Steve Backshall attempt daredevil antics on clifftops and waves in their exploration of the island. It's engaging stuff and one sequence where Snow and Backshall attempt to row between islands, busily calling each other "dude" and "buddy" as their boat sinks, is a joy all on its own.

    Will there ever be another series of the Gaelic prog Tir is Teanga? This show was brilliant. More to the point will the first two series ever be released on DVD. I loved the music on it especially when they got to a difficult or exposed bit on a climb and the tune turned all sinister

    Gagfax I'm sure there was some comment about Tir is Teanga when it finished last time on this forum and that it would be too expensive to produce the programme on DVD when someone enquired.

    I doubt if a search would find this item as it could possiblyhave been in the early days of the Bennachie thread.

    What a shame. 45 quid is a bit steep.

    Thursday 26th June BBC1 9pm sees the return of the new series of Britain's Lost World. Part 2 of 3-this week's episodefeatures a wartime aircraft crash site there being investigated by the intrepid team, as the search for St Kilda's wildlife goes ever more aquatic. A rather surprisingly good series really.

    Anyone else enjoy outdoors kit spotting in the first episode the other day?

    Think i recognised the big dry back the guy was using to get his gear over to the island, wasn't it a 109 ltrortlieb dry bag??? He was a wimp calling the chopper in because the storm was coming, what about the men and boys stuck there 9 months drinking from puddles and eating seagulls, he had a stove and a nice warm stone hut to hide in
