Series 2 - Episode 1: Georgia, USA Swamplands

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

In this opening episode, Ben journeys to the swamplands of south Georgia in the USA, to live with 64-year-old Colbert, a former city fat cat earning big bucks in the world of high finance, who has turned Tarzan. Colbert now lives in his hand-built wooden cabin, totally off the grid and with no toilet – a far cry from the luxurious pad he used to own.

From Colbert, Ben learns some of the vital skills needed to survive in this dangerous backwater, including skinning road-kill, spearing frogs, drinking swamp water and building a human nest. He also discovers that his host is a sex guru!

Facing the dangers of living in the wild, humidity and mosquitoes, Ben embraces what it is like to truly live alone in one of the biggest swamps in North America.

    Brilliant series, just a shame the 5-player is so bad and you have to try tree times to make it work most people would I'm sure not bother.

    I laughed out lout when Ben said, 'At least we don't go to bed hungry', after eating half a small frog. Love the series and program.

    Great stuff Ben. Looking forward to the rest of the series, especially episode 4, which was filmed on our little Caribbean island just off the coast of Panama. Ian Usher
