Cordon Rouge Club member Ed Stafford is currently filming his next television series of the critically acclaimed, survival documentary ‘Marooned’. ‘Marooned’ will once again see Ed deposited in a remote pocket of the world with nothing but a camera, emergency satellite phone and emergency medical kit. With only his bare hands as means of survival, Ed will be forced to use all his resources at his disposal to overcome the forces of nature and survive in these lonely, hostile conditions.
For this series, Ed has already both filmed and survived in Patagonia - a beautiful yet unpredictable environment made considerably more dangerous without the resources usually required to endure in such a setting. Ed was in complete isolation after being dropped by helicopter in the barren terrain. The few glimpses we have seen so far reveal Ed consuming bugs, grasshoppers and rodents in an effort to survive. Patagonia is also renowned for its unpredictable weather patterns. Despite being in South America it does not share its sub-tropical climate and visitors are instructed to prepare themselves for a whole plethora of weather conditions; from sun and rain to wind and snow.
