The set consists of two DVDs containing the following programmes:

  • DESERT - Ray Mears is in desert survival mode as he follows in the footsteps of an unsung hero of Australian exploration to find out how John McDouall Stuart became the first European to succeed in crossing this continent from South to North and back again. Ray shows how to wring water from these barren lands and how travelling light is the key to success on such an epic journey.
  • THE BUSH TUCKER MAN - Ray Mears makes a journey across Queensland with Les Hiddins - The Bushtucker Man. There's no-one else in the world quite like these two men, they both share a love of the wilderness and have learnt much of what they know from indigenous people. Each of them has already left his mark on the world of Bushcraft, now they get to work together for the first time ever.
  • TORRES STRAIT - Ray Mears travels to the Torres Strait Islands to learn how the island lifestyle has helped them retain much of their Bushcraft and knowledge. He finds out how these skills helped people survive during the Second World War and tells the story of Barbara Thompson, a young woman who was ship wrecked in the mid nineteenth century and survived despite the islands' reputation for cannibalism at the time.
  • ROCK ART - Rock Art is incredibly important to the Australian Aboriginal way of life and the Kimberley area of North West Australia is full of it. Ray travels with an aboriginal artist to learn more about the significance of the art of the area and even has a go at painting in the aboriginal style himself.

Good to watch these again having followed the series when it was shown on TV. The extras are short but nice additions. Good price in the sale!

I must first of all give 10 stars to the Woodlore team for such a rapid despatch of my order, I put in the order one afternoon and received it first thing the next morning!! Another excellent dvd by the living legend that is Ray Mears, as usual packed with information, insights and skills that can only be gained from 'walking the walk(about)' BUT it gets even better with another legend that is Les Hiddins The Bush Tucker Man! Truly great to see Ray and Les exchange their knowledge and bushcraft skills. Simply a Gem!

I ordered the entire set of DVD's and was shocked at how fast they made it to me here in middle America. The DVD's are great; I love them and so does my four year old son. Thanks for the vicarious living Ray.

Who doesn't like Australia? Great film. Much to learn. Well done Ray! This is a must buy. To see Les Hiddens and Ray working together is beyond novel - they feed off each other and share skills, experiences and much laughter.

I was glued to this DVD and found the journey into the bush with Les Hiddens so interesting. Also the film with Ray and Juju Wilson exploring Aboriginal artwork was awesome. Ray shares so much knowledge and love for the history of and life in the Australian bush. 'Good on yer, Ray!'
