Naked and Marooned with Ed Stafford

Published on Tuesday, 12th March 2013
The latest from Tigress Productions

Ed Stafford is undertaking an extreme survival challenge. He'll be washed up naked and alone on a desert island, south east of Fiji, with only his brain, bare hands, and a camera to keep him alive. He'll take no food, water, clothes, knife or tools, so from the moment he arrives he is on an extraordinary race to stay alive.

As man can only last three days without water and three weeks without food, Ed will attempt to survive on the island physically and mentally, for 60 days.

Ed will have to use what the uninhabited island has to offer, and his common sense, to find food, water, clothes, shelter and anything else which will keep him alive while he is marooned. Surrounded by beautiful tropical reefs Ed will also have to find a way to fish for food, while making sure he doesn't meet any of the deadly sharks which inhabit the seas around the island.

Will he also be able cope with the sweltering 30 °C temperatures, with no shelter or sun cream and then the freezing temperatures at night with no cover?

Naked and Marooned with Ed Stafford, produced by Tigress Productions, transmits at 9pm on Discovery UK.
