Les Stroud - "Survivorman"  - Discovery Channel
As “Survivorman,” Les Stroud spent years surviving some of the most remote locations on earth – alone – while filming himself. In BEYOND SURVIVAL WITH LES STROUD, premiering Friday, August 27 at 10PM ET/PT, Stroud learns the tribes’ techniques, takes part in their rituals and ceremonies and discovers the secrets of how their culture has survived for thousands of years….before they vanish forever. Les has relied on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to endure his seven-day challenges. Now, he takes his knowledge deeper; seek out the true masters of survival – the last indigenous tribes in the most remote corners of the planet.  In this unprecedented new series, Stroud travels to some of the most remote places on the planet to learn techniques rarely shown to people outside their own tribes. Steeped in ancient tradition and tribal custom, Stroud journeys to Madagascar to learn the survival techniques of the Antanosy tribe, known for their unique spiritual practices and wild dog hunting skills. He also ventures to the Kalahari Desert on a journey to connect with a tribe called the San, who hunt with poison arrows and practice a legendary trance dance that allows them to communicate with the spirit world. And he witnesses a “comoutin” ceremony in Papua New Guinea practiced by the Hewa people (literally translated as “the savages”) – something no outsider has seen in 40 years.
