Bushcraft

Wednesday evenings, BBC2

I am loving this series! Ray Mears looks more like a young vicar than a bush tucker man, but he’s definitely the best presenter for the job. He’s taken us around various parts of the world; starting in England, and this week’s being at Africa, showing us the ways in which we used to live before modern technology. It’s a really fascinating program, answering questions I’ve sometimes wondered like, what did they use to sew clothes together and to string a bow?
This week he was taken on safari by Masai Warriors who keep a very traditional lifestyle (62 kids he had – but then what else do you do with no telly?!) but it made me smile, seeing the bling of the big watch on his wrist! But it was really amazing stuff.
Sometimes in similar programs they send out anyone well known to present a program to get the viewers, but I feel Ray Mears is passionate about his subject, and happens to be a good presenter as well. He gets involved with the people he meets and has complete respect for them and the nature around him. I think he’s actually done several programs before, but this is the first I’ve seen him in, and quite frankly, I’m impressed! You’ve got to like someone who says, (quoting from memory) “Hyenas have been spotted around here – well known for biting your face off in the dark. But still; what a beautiful place to camp.” !!!

Ps. I had a flick through the book that goes with the series in WH Smiths, and that looks good too – tells you how to make a shelter and knots and things. It’s on my Christmas list, so hopefully I’ll give you a review of that later on!

Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
