Alaska: Surviving The Last Frontier

Tuesdays From 6th April, 10.00pm

Nine ordinary Americans have volunteered to participate in a unique experiment, to be stranded deep in the heart of Central Alaska. Their goal is to make it back to civilization. Left with only the barest of essentials, they travel sixty of the harshest miles on the planet while battling hunger, fatigue, and an unforgiving winter that will make survival almost impossible. These nine strangers must work together to hunt, fish, and trap their own food. Along the way, they encounter several backcountry shelters that they must utilize in order to protect themselves from Alaska’s frigid winter temperatures and whipping winds. This epic test of wills lasts almost an entire month, and the brutality of life in the wild will tax each member physically as well as psychologically. And this is not a contest. There is no million-dollar prize waiting for them at the end of the journey.
