Run­ning Wild With Bear Grylls 9pm, ITV

The Guardian - The Guide - - Audio -

De­spite be­ing a ten­nis great who col­lects Grand Slam ti­tles as if they were Poké­mon, Roger Fed­erer seems ner­vous as he as­cends the Swiss Alps for a rocky ren­dezvous with the world’s pre-em­i­nent sur­vival­ist. The pair’s sub­se­quent seven-mile wilder­ness trek – in­volv­ing the nail-bit­ing de­scent of a tow­er­ing, frozen wa­ter­fall and the rather staged use of ten­nis rack­ets as makeshift snow­shoes – shows the vet­eran ball­buster to be a game ad­ven­turer who barely blinks when pre­sented with the op­tion of gulp­ing frozen fish eye­balls.
