Survival Weekend

Two days of scheduling specially dedicated to those men and women blessed with a strong survival instinct.

Today's highlights include two episodes of Bare Necessities, in which teams of ordinary people are left to fend for themselves in the open for a week.

There are also three episodes of Ray Mears' Extreme Survival, in which the former SAS man and practised survivalist travels to some of the harshest environments in the world in search of a new challenge.

We even catch up with the folk on Taransay in an early episode of Castaway 2000.
