After jumping from a helicopter in a wing suit Bear finds himself in the Arizona dessert. There he finds the water tastes better filtered through his sock or a straw stuffed with grass or charcoal. Cruising across the desert in a make-shift sail cart (until he crashes of course) Bear heads for the for the mountains where he finds lots more ways to defy death with parachute cord such as a hanging bivouac and swinging from a cliff.
Bear sky dives from a helicopter heading for a small Malaysian island but finds it's covered with trees and very narrow beaches. So he's in for a swim. Finally on the island he build a shelter with a roof that collects rain water and a raft to take him to another island where he finds animals and a reliable water supply. There he builds a brush funnel to herd the animals to a trap he set. But with all the water around he can't resist a little spear fishing for crayfish as big as lobsters.
After being lowered from a helicopter and climbing down form the jungle canopy, Bear makes a torch to explore a cave in hopes of finding a stream. But mountain streams have waterfalls which mean more dangerous descents. Then the rain starts and the stream becomes a torrent but it's the road back to civilization.
Bear Grylls is dropped into a remote archipelago of islands off the coast of Borneo. From the moment he swims ashore Bear is fighting impenetrable jungle, scaling escarpments and navigating inhospitable swamps in his search for freshwater. Desperate for food Bear has no choice but to try and spear fish in the shallows at night. The struggle to survive continues as he tries to catch fish by free diving to depths of 20ft and on land Bear has to use all his skills to drive wild boar into his trap. But will he find the ultimate key to his survival a freshwater source?
Bear Grylls travels the world to give you the best tips and techniques so you can survive wherever you're stranded. From skin diving without a mask in the tropics, to finding water in the desert, this is the best of Bear's never before seen footage.
