    Unbelievable rubbish. Fancy throwing them in at the deep end without even the basic knowledge.
    Can't wait to see who bails next

    It might have been an idea to introduce "two tribes" in two separate camps from the start, and not let the other know that they`re there. Place them a couple of km`s apart. It could`ve made an interesting comparison, a bit of competition ? Or maybe the "can do`s" would`ve ended up migrating to one camp, and the "can`t do`s" falling by the wayside.
    As it stands then the "experiment" has been compromised because outside help was needed.
    As Valantine mentioned, there was apparently too little knowledge over too short a time period to enable the participants a reasonable chance of success. That combined with some frankly lazy behaviour on the part of some involved who shouldn`t have even got through the screening process.

    I also watched last nights episode and found it annoying, David_JAFO has pointed out some very valid points and I agree how did half of them get through the selection process? on something like that they should all pull together find out what strengths and weaknesses everyone has then make a plan so that everyone has tasks that they can do, hunting, fishing, shelter building, sewing, cooking ect, give them tasks that they are good at.
    There is no I in team.

    I`m afraid I missed that element Valantine. If they were then the whole thing is a bigger farce than I thought possible.
    One thing that wasn`t mentioned was women`s periods, they`re there for two months so some would have had to deal with this. In contrast the 1978 programme "Living in the Past" was going to have a separate hut for women during their menstrual period but decided against it, and allowed them to use modern sanitary towels for the duration.
    Whilst the 1978 programme wasn`t perfect, it was years ahead of the current offering and yet nearly 40 years in the past.

    The issue was discussed in the first programme I believe

    Was it just me, or did that chap Steve, who was the self appointed leader, come across as extremely arrogant when he left ?
    Despite my reservations about the programme, it would seem that with the further 7 days training, the remaining participants do seem to be able to perform some tasks now instead of lazing around. The lorry driver chap seems to be the most adaptable to the situation, bit unfortunate that he became ill.
