New se­ries. Twenty peo­ple are chal­lenged to sur­vive for two months in the wilder­ness by hunt­ing and for­ag­ing for food in a so­cial ex­per­i­ment re-cre­at­ing con­di­tions of the Stone Age. In the first episode, they are taken to a for­est in a re­mote area of Bul­garia where ar­chae­ol­o­gist and sur­vival ex­pert Klint Jan­ulis in­tro­duces them to their new home – a Mesolithic­style camp sup­plied with ba­sic tools, ra­tions, a pile of flint and a freshly killed deer. With only hours be­fore night­fall, the tribe has to pre­serve as much food as pos­si­ble, dig la­trines and build a fire.
