Left for Dead - Ed Stafford

Explorer Ed Stafford is on a mission to tackle some of the planet’s most extreme environments to find out what it’s really like when you’re lost, alone, and desperately searching for a safe route back to civilisation. 

On the move without food, it takes just 10 days for the human body to start to shut down. So that’s how long Ed is giving himself to escape. Ed travels alone and on foot, so he must be tracked from afar by a safety team - but if he gets into serious trouble, there’s no guarantee they’ll reach him in time in such hostile landscapes. This episode sees Ed's being dropped in the Altai Mountains - a vast, isolated range, bordering Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan and China.
