Ed faces a hard battle to the end
PEOPLE are capable of extraordinary things — if they’re stubborn and determined enough. Take former British Army captain Ed Stafford for example. He had a dream of becoming the first person to walk the entire length of the mighty Amazon river. Of course, there’s a reason why nobody had done it before him. It’s very dangerous, and really difficult. In the conclusion of this twopart documentary, we follow his progress. Having made it to Tabatinga, near where the borders of Colombia, Peru and Brazil meet, Ed sets a course due east towards Manaus. He expects to cover this part of his journey in 12 months, but won’t be alone in his trek. He will be joined by fellow Brit Sam Dyson, who has little survival training. However, it’s not long before drudging through swampland takes its toll on the new guy.
