Hear,hear BorderReiver. Good comment!
Sounds good to me. I don't care how much or how often people get out, how dedicated people are, whether they sleep out under a tarp every night or go to a camp ground once a year. I just enjoy the exchange of knowledge from a variety of people, many of whom don't even agree with me on some subjects. All the different skills, interests and knowledge are what makes this an interesting place to be.
At a shooting club I was once told by a chap that I didn't attend regularly enough to be a "proper shooter". Didn't stop me winning top prize at the competition though!
You have to take your bushcraft where you can find it, in the woods, the back yard, the shed or even the spare room. You're really only limited by your own mind!
Now, to get back on topic, I can't wait to order the DVD's so I can go through the series properly and really sift out the gems in there!
I have already got it on back order with play.com (the cheapest I have found so far)
I am actually really enjoying it. I like the mix of history, bushcraft and anthropology and I think that Ray is trying to do something a bit different as he has done most of the Bushcraft, over and over again. And it might attract new people to the subject.
Just how many times can he show the bow drill etc.
Like many fokes I found some of the editing very, very annoying!
As regards the editing - there's nothing new under the sun!
Just take a look at some of the early 'Tracks' stuff and guess what you'll see - split screens and multi-shots!!
Just for the record - I'm enjoying the series!
I'm trying to remember if Bush Tucker Man had similar visuals and music as beng it was just that episode I thought it might have been a nod in that direction.
I'm with Bob - this is ace
if you watch the btm series and their evolution its rm 10-20 years early. no wonder they got on rm nicked lh's playbook
Which wristwatch is he wearing on Walkabout? Looks like some kind of diver...
PS Just saw him failing at making fire....
What's that Ray? a lighter! Mmmmm
This last show was really like Ray on holiday.. totally relaxing
I think the watch is a Rolex Submariner... can that be?
im sure its the rolex submariner as well
thought him failing at lighting fire and his blisters were good
Ah - the boy has come a long way since I first encountered him!
Most enjoyable programme this evening (just watched it on iplayer).
It's always good to learn about the history of various things, rock art included. What was even more enjoyable was seeing the failed firelighting and a disposable lighter being used, though I have a feeling the prices of pink disposable lighters has just rocketed
Anyone know what blood group Ray is so i can copy him?
Must admit that the last was the best for me.
No distracting "image-in-image" arty shots, sound-track was good and the topic was new and refreshing - kept my attention throughout the program.
Just a pity that there aren't any more in the series.
Ogri the trog
Is that actually him?!
I loved this programe. Jujus artwork was great, and I have a love of rock art, its great to see it so passionately presented. We normally get some presenter, if they look at rock art at all, to dissect it from an archeological point of view which is often condescending eg 'perhaps this man here is a human sacrifice, and these people were thought to be spirits by the primatives who painted them' I think the boats and the footprints show us that rock art was often just a way of expressing, not just simply something of religious significance. And Well done Ray for conveying it so passionately. Now who was it who said he was boring as a presenter?
I thought this was kind of interesting, ray seemed very happy and enthusiastic and that was nice to see. Not really bushcraft driving around in a land rover all the time, but it was interesting non the less.
How young is he there John?, he looks nobbut a lad!
I totally agree, but the scale of the land (continent!) makes anything else (other than flying) impractical in terms of TV production in this format I guess...
And driving around in a Landrover in the desert can be fun
