Bear Grylls: Born Survivor: Episode 9

Saturday, July 11 on 4

Bear parachutes into the Siberian tundra, one of the coldest and harshest places on earth, where he must survive a week of extreme challenges. Battling temperatures of -30?C, where anything living is buried deep beneath the surface, Bear demonstrates his scavenging skills. En route towards the Taiga forest he finds a deer carcass, and the fresh meat restores his energy reserves. He abseils into the immense Taiga forest, and is confronted by the most intimidating challenge of all: a swim under the ice in temperatures of -40?C, which can send the body into fatal shock.
