Bear Grylls is no stranger to extremes. As one of the youngest people to climb Everest and one of the few to successfully complete the gruelling training for the French Foreign Legion, he has experienced intense cold, pain and exhaustion. But now he s up against something a bit different. Born Survivor puts Bear in situations that could happen to anybody, anytime and proves how easy it is to be caught by surprise in life and death situations. Born Survivor - Sahara A two-hour feature length special in the Sahara where Bear shows what it takes to survive the blistering heat, deadly sand storms and lack of food and water in what is one of the most hostile places on earth. Using his skills and adopting little known techniques used by indigenous tribes he encounters along the way, Bear takes on the Sahara and demonstrates that the unthinkable can, at times, be lifesaving. He devours lizards and scorpions, drinks water from a camel's rumen (stomach compartment) and demonstrates what to do if caught in deadly quicksand. This is a series of tough challenging environments where having the right skills and knowledge can mean the difference between life and death.
