Where the Wild Men Are

Where the Wild Men AreWhere the Wild Men Are

Adventurer Ben Fogle meets more people who have turned their backs on the trappings of Western society and set up home in some of the most isolated locations on Earth. We all occasionally dream of giving up the day job and moving away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

But some people take their desire to get away from it all to the extremes. In this returning series, Ben Fogle lives with different people who inhabit some of the most remote locations in the world. This series sees Ben join British dump-truck driver, Ian, who sold ‘his life’ on eBay and bought his own primitive Caribbean island off the coast of Panama.

Colbert quit high finance and moved to the Southern Georgian swamplands. Access to his self-built cabin is via canoe. He survives by living off the creatures that inhabit this dangerous back-water.
