If you haven't seen it yet, it's a good show to watch. It's on the history channel.
Basically they drop off 10 survivalists in the Vancouver Island wilderness with limited supplies. They are dropped in separate areas, so are completely Alone -- no producers, no film crew, they do the filming themselves through various cameras. Their single mission is to stay alive the longest and if they are the last one standing they win $500,000.
Not only do they have to contend with building shelter, building fire, finding food, enduring the weather … rain and eventually snow, and fighting off predators, but they also have to contend with being completely alone. They talk to the cameras about what they are doing and what they are thinking, missing, feeling. This is season 2. I wish I had known about it for season 1, so at some point I'll look into watching last season.
If you're looking for a good series to get into, this is one to watch.
