Marooned With Ed Stafford



Marooned with Ed Stafford is a documentary television series commissioned by Discovery Channel and produced by Tigress Productions,[1] part of the Endemol Shine Group.[2] Ed Stafford films the series, in which he journeys to remote destinations around the world for ten days each to see if he can survive there on his own in solitude with no clothes (first series only), no food, and no tools. He can only take his camera, an emergency satellite phone and an emergency medical kit. Stafford's goal is to see if he can not only survive, but thrive under these tough conditions.




Marooned with Ed Stafford



In season 2, Ed returns for six more challenges in some of the harshest environments known to mankind. In each episode Ed maroons himself in a remote location that could put his life in jeopardy within hours, unless he devises a strategy to survive.


MAROONED season 2 is entirely self-shot by Ed in extreme, remote locations ranging from the arid and rocky Gobi Desert in Mongolia to the tropical jungles of Guatemala and the Namibian high veld. The series follows Ed as he strives not just to stay alive, but to thrive, armed with nothing but an emergency phone, medical kit and his camera to record his adventures.


He was then stranded alone on a remote Fijian island for 60 days for the documentary Naked Castaway before shifting to Marooned with Ed Stafford, a series where the adventurer spent shorter spells in different remote locations.


Stranded for 10 days in a different remote location each episode Ed is left high and dry with nothing but his video equipment in some of the most challenging and extreme environments this planet has to offer. On the back of his incredible 860 day jungle trek which featured in Discovery Channel series WALKING THE AMAZON, and 60 days spent alone with just a camera on a desert island for NAKED AND MAROONED Ed throws himself into new remote and hostile environments in this all-new series. Ed is ccompletely exposed as he attempts to survive alone with nothing: no food, no water, not even a knife. He must prove that he can overcome the dangers of each environment with only his camera to keep him company. Ed's mission is not simply to survive, but to thrive in some of the world's toughest environments. Shot in the mysterious Gran Sabana Mountains of Venezuela, the dangerous Okavango Delta in Botswana, the harsh Carpathian Mountains in Romania, the unforgiving coast of Western Australia and the humid jungles of Borneo in Brunei - each location presents a unique and deadly test which could kill Ed within hours. Ed has just 10 days to show he can succeed against the odds in any environment with nothing but his bare hands. If not he will suffer the consequences of everything Mother Nature has to throw at him. MAROONED WITH ED STAFFORD sees Ed go to extreme lengths to endure the most hostile of environments, and then he pushes himself a step further to see if he can grow comfortable with and flourish in these remote corners of the world.


Adventurer Ed Stafford has walked the length of the Amazon River -- he is the first person to accomplish that -- so perhaps being stranded on a desert island near Fiji without clothes, food, water and tools and attempting to survive for 60 days isn't that daunting. The only possessions he does have are cameras, and so viewers are provided a fly-on-the-wall perspective of Ed's attempts to find food, make fire, process water to drink, and build a shelter -- among many other tasks that will help him stay alive.


A survival-themed documentary TV series, Marooned with Ed Stafford is executive produced by Stephen Rankin and produced by Tigress Productions. The show is also known as Ed Stafford: Naked and Marooned and Naked Castaway. It has been on the air since 2013 and is filmed in a one-hour format. The current season began broadcasting on Discovery on May 8, 2016.


Ed Stafford walked into the history books when he became the first man to walk the length of the Amazon River. He faced numerous challenges, including snakes, severe floods, electric eels, jaguars, and the hostility of local tribes confronted with a tall foreign man in their midst. By filming and blogging his expedition directly from the Amazon, Ed Stafford caught the attention of followers all over the world.

In the view of Maximus of Tyre, writing in the second century AD, Homer's Iliad was of dubious worth when it came to military matters, but full of expertise on the subject of love. "The territory of love," wrote Maximus, "he surveys in meticulous detail, covering every act and age and form and experience, noble and base alike, chaste love, licentious love, just love, violent love, obsessive love, and gentle love." This judgement may seem an eccentric one to many readers of the Iliad, an epic poem far more concerned with fighting between Greeks and Trojans than with love. In fact, the Iliad is silent about two erotic episodes in the life of its main character, the brilliant and irascible warrior Achilles: his seduction or rape of the young Deidameia, the daughter of King Lycomedes of Scyros, in whose court the boy Achilles was concealed and brought up as a girl to protect him from being conscripted to fight; and his falling in love with Queen Penthesilea of the Amazons, in some accounts at the very moment when he killed her and looked into her dying eyes. The intimate relationships that the epic does portray--Achilles' sleeping with his slave girl Briseis and his deep love for his comrade Patroclus--are so enigmatically underdeveloped, that ancient and modern readers have argued about whether Achilles really cared for Briseis, and whether Achilles and Patroclus were lovers. 041b061a72
