"Born Survivor" follows British mountaineer and adventurer Bear Grylls into some of the world's most inhospitable places. Bear reveals the fundamental skills needed to survive and get out alive as he attempts to find his way back to civilisation! From the Alaskan mountain range to the European Alps, follow Bear as he paraglides into the Andes, rides the rapids of the Amazon on a single tree trunk, parachutes into an alpine lake and treks through Bear-infested forests, risking his health and often coming face to face with death! From the deserted, barren landscapes of the African Savannah and the Australian Outback to the humid swamplands of the Florida Everglades, Bear demonstrates how to keep swamp-dwelling alligators at bay, holds off wild animals in Kenya and confronts a deadly group of Australian salt water crocodiles... all in the name of survival! Half a million people visit Scotland's stunning Cairngorm National Park each year to walk in its glens or climb its mountains but few realise the park is classified as an Arctic landscape, and an average of thirty tourists die here every year. Watch in awe as Bear demonstrates how to navigate using ice formations, tests hazardous snow slopes for avalanche potential, uses moss to purify water and skins a deer for shelter.
