Can't really make my mind up about this bloke who after all, did spend 50 days in the Yukon alone. Speaking from my armchair with a can of Newkie Broon and a bag of liquorice allsorts to hand,I thought he was a bit untrained for it and bugger didn't he cry a lot! I'm not a weeper so I found it strange but I sort of admire him for doing it [well paid was he?] I think a few weeks Special Forces training would have helped him more,and if it was me I would have insisted on a guitar or if not allowed,a harmonica. It would have scared any bears off and music can cheer you up if lonely.Just my opinion,I probably would have cried for my mother after a fortnight,but I don't think so. Still thought he could have been a bit tougher,but I could be wrong about that,not worth a series though. Never spoke to the wife for 3 weeks and that passed OK no ill effects apart from no dinners!
