Survival Of The Fittest Exposed On Tv

Dec 23, 2007
Some of the most watched television programs today deal with the human ability to survive in the most bizarre wilderness circumstances. Mankind has been faced with the problem of how to exist in a world that seems to present us with so many obstacles. The simple acts of eating and staying warm were two of our earliest challenges and today those things have not changed.

There are many interesting programs that are on various television channels that depict what it must have been like for early man to deal with these challenges. Shows like these can often be seen on cable or satellite television channels like The Discovery Channel and The History Channel.

The interest in early man's survival skills are not the only ones that are holding an interest for people today. One of the most loved and watched television series on right now is Survivor. This program comes on the CBS broadcast network and has been syndicated to other cable channels. It is one of the most successful reality shows to date.

Survivor deals with people chosen to be on the show and they are divided up into tribes. The Survivor shows shooting locations are always in extremely remote places where the contestants, who are competing for one million dollars, have to test their survival skills not only to prove themselves, but also in competitions with the other contestants.

The show is filled with not only surviving the elements, but with the intrigue that goes on between the contestants. Alliances are formed and broken in an attempt to be the last remaining survivor and winner of the game.

There are two other popular shows that place their stars in remote locations where they are on their own. Man verses Wild can be seen on The Discovery Channel. The guide, Bear Grylls, is dropped off, usually by helicopter, in places like The Moab Desert, The Swiss Alps, and the jungles of Cost Rica. He must use his skills and knowledge to make his way back to civilization.

Survivor Man can be seen on The Science Channel. Les Stroud is the host or guide in this program. It is very similar to Man verses Wild. Both of these guys only have the few items that they are stranded with and must figure out ways to make them the most useful. They can teach you how to find edible food and drinking water in the weirdest circumstances and how to make shelters and build fires.

If actually being stranded in the wilderness is not for you , but you still find it interesting, then watching these kinds of programs is probably as close as you really want to get to a real survival situation.
