    Default Dual Survival & Bruce Parry programmes...

    Just seen this review for a new programme called Dual Survival on The discovery Channel at 10pm from Monday 10th January. It's basically two survival experts with differing approaches who are dropped into hostile environments to see whose approach is best.

    The two guys are Cody Lundin (baseball cap, pigtails and wooly top), and Dave Canterbury (Mexican style tache, headband and combats). Might be worth a punt along with Bruce Parry's new series, Artic, at 9pm on sunday, BBC2. I find Bruce very watchable...

    I find attitude more interesting than anything else with survival stories, hopefully I'll catch this, thanks for the notice

    Yes they ran the first two episodes here in France too tonight. Dave Canterbury has a huge library of videos on youtube explaining his Bushcraft and Survival techniques.. Very interesting...
    He doesn't have Les Stroud's ability with a camera, but his info is very good and he puts it over well. Just google his website which is called the Patchfinder School.

    Just saw Dual survival, and I quite liked it.
    I was concerned that conflicting attitudes of the experts would be the main aspect of the programme (that would be the Dutch way of ruining a good show, like we did with Masterchef). But no! Both get their say, and appreciate each other.

    Does this mean that Man, Woman.. Wild is coming to our screens too. That show makes me chuckle.

    I remember that night well when we discovered that show Southey. We both just had to stop up and watch them all..... great stuff.

    Haha it was brilliant! I'm sorting out my garage at the month and currently putting the desktop in there, I think work may stop tomorrow for an hour or so to re watch, if there still up on the tube.

    I saw them all on you tube about 6 months ago, just after they had come out in the US. There is some good stuff in the programs & I learnt abit from each one. The guys have that American 'Can Do' attitude that not all will like & there are some things in there that we all probably would say was not a clever thing to be doing (like running round checking traps in the dark with a birchbark lantern, as in episode 1) but I like the 2 presenters attitudes. They come from the opposite side of the street but they get on well most of the time.

    As has been mentioned, Dave Cantebury has a lot of good videos :

    I've been watching a few on youtube - thanks for the heads up!

    The guys contrast well. It helps the programme along, stopping it being a one man boring band and because they know different things, it helps us as the viewer.

    I think the Sky mag may have it wrong. It's not on the Sky + listings nor on the Discovery Channels TV schedule listing. Shame that.

    Well either discovery are wrong, or Sky, because it doesn't show up on my listings (missed the first - if it was there). Anyone watch it and can confirm it was on?

    Sky should send an appology out for the error. I was waiting for it today and nothing...Man this gets me really crazy! I went to work today thinking that Monday wasn't going to be that bad because I would have that in the evening to compensate for it....
