In this classic from the BBC archive, Ray Mears takes Hollywood
movie star Ewan McGregor in search of the ultimate adventure through the dense
jungles of Honduras.
After just a few basic lessons in survival from Ray, the
duo set off on a four-day trek. But Ray is no soft option travelling companion.
He tests people to their limits, and Ewan must live up to his taskmaster’s
expectations, enduring daily downpours and the jungle’s bugs. Their destination
is the ruins of a lost civilisation, a huge, overgrown plaza, unvisited for
centuries. This is a trip that money can’t buy.
