    there are 2 bits I won't forget in a hurry...

    1. Ray looking like a vampyre after making the hand impression on the wall

    2. The ant trying to make off with his fungal tinder

    It's nice to see a diferent perspective on it all, rather than "this is how to not die" :super:

    I agree it was very good. A lot of information to take in and worthy of a second viewing.

    Seems this 'back to basics' approach is the theme so I will definately look forward to the next programme.

    Well done Mr Mears.

    I really liked the way he didn't show off his £200 knife or any of the fancy kit. bushcraft as it should be. I must admit I got a bit bored when he talking to that woman though. I have seen a lot of stuff like that before but I suppose it helped set the sceen. I really like the bow making.

    I agree. Looks like another one to watch all the way through.

    Can anybody satisfy my thirst for the knowledge of 'how many people were active on here between 2000 and 2100'??????

    I've looked forward to the new series and looks like its going to be good.

    As an Archer who has made a primitive bow, but with modern tools, it was excellent to see Chris using basic tools used to make the bow - only one thing I wasn't too sure of on the programme - the "canned" birdsong - I'm sure the cuckoo followed Ray around.

    Mmm, not at all bad.

    I had to nip "out back" at a critical time and missed the stringing of that bow; what did he use for that?

    awsome ancient technology at its best forget gore-tex and flippin ventile !! that was a taste of pure bushcraft a tree gives you hunting tool a stone gives you a means to make that hunting tool and the earth gives you fire a means to cook your food and keep you safe and warm.Pure essence of bushcraft, we seem to get absorbed in kit heaven sometimes Human and Nature working together to achieve comfort and happiness is key...........bliss

    Yeh Fantastic, his best yet, back to the old Tracks standard :biggthump
    It answered a few things that had been bugging me like the use of Sinew ! and then there was the bluebell bulbs...and pine resin glue. I also really enjoyed the museum bit , just to see how fine the tools were.
    But best of all :yikes: My girlfriend had a rehearsal so asked me to video it for HER !!!!!! :super: :eek:): :hyper:
