Bear Grylls: Born Survivor

DISCOVERY CHANNEL – Mondays from 3 May, 9.00pm

Bear is back for some brand new, globe- trotting adventures. But this time, many of the places he goes to have something in common – they’ve all been affected by, or are indicative of, some form of natural disaster. Join him as he travels to a region of Southern China, which has just suffered a devastating typhoon, and has to fight his way through the wrecked countryside and flood-swollen rivers. Bear then drops directly onto a live volcano in Guatemala, showing how to avoid being killed by a rampaging lava flow – which can travel at up to 35mph. Then, he heads to a city environment that has just suffered a catastrophic disaster, employing adapted wilderness techniques to an urban location where the struggle for survival is as acute as in any remote region in the world.
