You can really see that he has such a passion for bushcraft and totally respects native peoples and bushman when he is on the verge of tears after seeing they give their appreciation. A brilliant programme that really delved into bushcraft. 10/10 ! Well done!

I personally thought that tonights program (In Africa) was brilliant... I may never visit there and there wasn't a lot in the way of technical knowledge but I thought about my facial expression and found I was grinning from ear to ear for an hour solid.

Inspirational stuff.

Only the second one I've seen.
Wasn't as good as the first.
First wasn't great.

Were this not the last day before pay day I'd be in the pub.
I wouldn't be missing much.

I'm sorry, and I understand the "wider audience" argument, but it's not a "Bushcraft" show. It's a natural history proggy or a travelog as already stated. A bit like Michael Palin's magnum opa(?).

None the worse for it, if that's what you're after and I'm sure it'll make a great coffee table book.

I thought the littlest lad was the funkiest berimbau player :cool:

Knockout whisky seems like "pokey old tackle" dont it! :naughty:

Glad I watched tonite, I almost didnt bother after last weeks episode.

Whisky mac needs two ingrediants whisky and green ginger wine in equal portions - KO would be ok but where would be get the green ginger wine??

Tonights programme was an improvement on the last few but I am still inclined to agree with Jamies synopsis.

I agree bushcraft in name - one interesting point my wife raised was that in the clips shown from his old series which he showed to the Hadsa he and they were doing the same things as in this series.

I don't want to sound down on the guy but how many times can you show the same thing?

I have to say he did seem genuinely moved though so I salute him for that. :biggthump

yes i just spoke to a pal on the phone he mentioned the same thing as your wife also i thought hecould have showed a little more of the bushcraft the native people used and he said "but how many of his shows show you just that?" i suppose thats true but every ones perseption is different :?: great insight into African bush life and traditon and culture but lacked the true bush hunters life surviving and overcoming mother natures trials :?: only IMO :wink:

Touched, moved and inspired.

That was the best i have seen. but i think that kind of area has personal connections with me. Almost identical to many places i have been, and again, Ray was absolutely brilliant with those people. Ans his tears at the end told us much about him as a person.

I agree totally Joe. It might not be the technical programe we wanted but it is the best thing on TV at the moment. Ray is famous enough to be able to do the programe he wants now and he seems to be enjoying it even if some of you are not.

Roll on the next series in the spring.
