Hacking The Wild (Science Channel) – Premieres 15th February
A survival show where Andy Quitmeyer see if adapting some electronics can help him get back to civilisation in the same time or quicker than a historical case where someone was stranded.
Andy is given the basic survival essentials along with a few electronic items then heads off to the original start point where he beings to improvise electronical devices in the hope they will get him to the escape point quicker and in a more luxurious manner.
While the idea of the show is a mix of any survival programme you care to think of and Mythbusters, it doesn’t really grab the attention as much as you’d expect. To that, it’s a bit disappointing.
