    Wild Britain with Ray Mears

    This must have been the most poorly trailed show in history. I have checked the ITV website to find that the last programme in the series was shown last night, 8th November.

    For those who subscribe to Sky tv, it will be shown as 1 hr programmes on a channel called Eden, sometime during 2011.

    Disappointing that this was so poorly advertised as it would appear that this is a return to the type of shows I think show Ray Mears talents off to the best.

    Its a nice wild-life orientated series, I haven't seen them all yet but I had my media-center record them all, I can do you a copy of the series on disc if you'd like Martin?

    I, too, wish we got more of Ray over here. OKBushcraft, you can go to Veoh.com, type in Ray Mears, and watch a lot of his older stuff. ITV won't let us over here watch anything on their website. Go figure that one out.

    To be honest as much as I love Ray, this type of show has all been done before, and better, by other presenters..the series is not giving us anything new at all..I thik we need a new Bushcraft King as the original has gone astray..

    Well, the post is vacant and Dave Canterbury got propelled to stardom all on the back of his you tube videos, so who knows who will soon be seated upon the vacant throne of the bushcraft kingdom!
