Bushcraft Build Off (Discovery) – Premieres 8th November
A survivalist competition hosted by Matt Graham of Dude, You’re Screwed fame, where two bushcraft experts are challenged to build a shelter that could house their team for a year from only what they can source from their location within a 7 day time limit.
Both competitors have a team they have personally selected, where each person in the team can bring one tool for the challenge. To decide on the location where each the teams will build the shelter, the team leaders go head to head in a wilderness challenge, and the first one to complete it gets first pick on the two places given.
During the main build Graham visits the team giving his advice on what the teams are doing well, or highlights areas that they can improve. At the end of the 7 days the final buildings are judged by Graham using the four categories Materials, Craftmanship, Function and Livability, and the winning team get’s there shelter posted on the shows website.
As survival competitions go it’s a different take on what is normally released and is an easy bit of laid back viewing.
