Did you watch him on BBC2 this evening? He was on about an explorer, Samuel Hearne. Seems this bloke Hearne worked for the Hudson Bay Company and was an all round diamond geezer, who was respected by the tribes he came into contact with in Northern Canada What bollocks! When you read up about him, he failed in everything he attempted, when given the job of finding a river route to the Arctic Ocean, the indians thought he was a wimp, because he wouldn't help them to slaughter some innocent Inuit fishermen (and women) When he was the governer of some fort, he surrendered it to the French, and buggered off, leaving his wife behind to starve to death. To add; Yes, Ray Mears is a fat cunt.
Never mind his ample girth, I cannot abide his monotone and dreary TV show! He renders fascinating subjects down to Snoozeathons. No way I could watch him after a day at work or such like, it would be instant bed time.
