How To Stay Alive | Bear Grylls Special

How To Stay Alive | Bear Grylls Special

Successful survival involves four basic principles protection, rescue, water, and food. Your first priority is shelter. Sometimes you just need a place to rest up to keep you out of the elements. What I need is just a load of green foliage just to cover all of this framework. And then in about 20 minutes, I’ve made a pretty good emergency shelter. Next on my list of priorities is fire and securing it can be tough. What I’m doing now is making a bow. It takes a little perseverance, but once you’ve mastered it, it’s as good as having a box of matches. The smoke’s starting. Need enough of that to make an ember. To then drop into the tinder whoo there we go Okay, then the ember on a tip carefully into the tinder and just nuture it. There we go we’ve got a flame. In the hunt for water resourcefulness and improvisation are key. I can use a bit of charcoal from my fire to make a basic water filter. What it will do is make any toxins or chemicals bind to the charcoal. And then by putting grass in the end, that’s gonna take out any bigger stuff like sand or grit. And then just over the top of it put a bit of my t-shirt. Well it tastes clean. Maybe a bit sweaty from my t-shirt, but good to drink and safe. Every environment presents its own set of dangers. In order to survive in the wild you need energy and that means food. And you see all the blood coming out of its jugular there. And that really in an emergency survival situation is food and life. And really fresh blood like that is so rich in minerals, vitamins, energy, everything you need to survive and so many nomads and tribes all around the world drink the fresh blood from their animals as a source of energy and survival food. The next priority is to maximize your chance for rescue. Fill this out then with a little bit of water. Now, to prepare the wire. And I really want to rub it like this in my hair and the idea of this is it magnetizes a bit of wire and when I put it in it will swing round and point towards magnetic north giving me that north-south line. And that should be enough and then what I do is put the leaf in and drop that on top. And, yeah, look at that. There you go it’s beginning to swing around Freely suspended metal that’s been magnetized, will always point to magnetic north. There you go and that’s now come steady and that has given me a good reliable north-south line. Now I know the sun rose somewhere over there cause I didn’t see it so that’s East. So, west is somewhere over there and this north-south line means I’m definitely heading in the right direction for my westward track. So, I’m gonna keep this little bit of wire, get rid of the leaf, drink the water, and then I’m out of here. Without the right knowledge living in the wild can be a real challenge

  1. Why did evolution make us loose all of our survival skills. Now were just smart sacks of skin, if you can out smart the animals, you're smart enough.

  2. Jesus what is he a tiger eating a god damn zebra and then says
    Ah that lovely blood coming out its jugular
    Sucks the blood
    and that lovely warm blood full of vitamins and all that stuff
    Says with bloody face
    Oh and i need to get inside before i turn to ash the sun burns!

  3. Wait. Stop. That wire thing at the end there, making a rudimentary compass… How do you know which end is pointing north? Surely one end is pointing north and one end is pointing south? So how is this supposed to work again? The leaf points north so that's north?

    This shit is so fake.




  5. humans came from the wild isnt it a bit shit we cant do fuck all now without a kid i remember movies about computers taking over the world and they really have.talking to you now from a computer.

  6. disculpe BEAR , pero malte nielsen quedo secuestrado dentro de mi antena puede verificar ……. alguien lo metio y habla que quiere salir

  7. Constant bad advice. If there was anybody I would choose not to be in a survival situation with its bear Grylls.
    He is likely to give you food poisoning or get you killed by going into a cave that you have no idea of how dangerous it would be.
    Or encourage kids to try cutting their rope in half and tie a knot that could come apart at any moment.
    His programs should be taken off air. He is far from a survival expert as he spends every night in a five star hotel watching programs made by Ray mears on how to do things properly.

  8. If Bear were to put my rock hard penis in his bow drill and spin it really fast it would squirt moisturized protein out the end.

  9. This show is fake af I heard that this “survivalist” builds the shelter then leaves to a hotel then comes back and acts like he spent the night in the shelter
