In contrast to that the Ed Stafford stuff is excellent. You know it’s genuine when he has to call it in and get extracted before completing his mission, because otherwise he’s going to die.
The same with the Steve Backshall, exploring places on earth that haven’t been explored. I find that amazing in this day and age.
The only problem is that it’s hidden away on crappy back channels.
Yon guy is brilliant - I first discovered him when he was doing the "Deadly 60" series for CBBC. He's enthusiastic, knows his subject matter, and is determined to get it across to his audience.
Probably why he isn't better known by the general public as far as the BBC is concerned.
