Man vs. Wild: Season 4 DVD

SKU ID #207550
$24.95

This title is exclusive to the Discovery Channel Store.

The Man vs. Wild Season 4 DVD set compiles 13 riveting episodes from the thrilling fourth year of the hit series, tracking an extreme outdoorsman as he's dropped into some of the most remote and physically challenging locations in the world. The fourth year is one of the toughest on mountaineer Bear Grylls yet: He fights for survival in the African Sahara, forages for food after a typhoon in Southern China, and braves the bone-chilling cold of the Arctic Circle. The Man vs. Wild DVDs from season four also include a bonus mini-episode looking into one of the most ravenous and frightening fish in the world, the piranha.

In the Man vs. Wild Season 4 DVD set, you'll discover that Bear Grylls has served with the British Special Forces, climbed Everest and explored the Arctic. In this exciting series, he shows us how to survive the toughest and most remote environments on the planet by putting himself in the position of a stranded tourist. In the Man vs. Wild DVDs from season four, he parachutes into rainforests and abseils into deserts, lakes and the highest, most inhospitable peaks in America. Using his specialist survival techniques to find his way out of these wildernesses, he climbs sheer cliffs, navigates white water and icy crevasses, encounters predators and forages for maggots, raw fish, alligator meat and live snakes as food.

Shop for the Man vs. Wild Season 4 DVD set, and you just might learn a few tips in case you ever find yourself stranded in the wilderness, caught in a typhoon, or facing ravenous piranhas.

EPISODES:

  1. Alabama: Bear Grylls is deep in the back-woods of Alabama where he tackles freezing white-waters, comes face to face with a vicious wild boar, braves a raging forest fire, and gets trapped without light deep in the heart of an enormous limestone cave.

  2. Arctic Circle: Bear Grylls heads for the icy wastes of the Arctic Circle, where he tackles a frozen waterfall, hunts wild reindeer and battles against some of the coldest conditions on the planet.

  3. Vietnam: Deep in the heart of Vietnam, Bear Grylls encounters blood-sucking leeches, a deadly Spitting Cobra, eats a Forest Scorpion and avoids a violent mountain river flood as he tangles with the worst the jungle can throw at him.

  4. Texas: In Western Texas, Bear falls to earth from an upturned bi-plane, to lock horns with the parched Chihuahuan Desert; he traverses deep gorges, locates an oasis and takes on a diamond back rattlesnake.

  5. Alaska: Bear Grylls is in the wilds of Alaska where he ice-hops onto a glacier, is left hanging by his fingertips over a forest waterfall and narrowly avoids getting crushed between an iceberg and his rescue vessel.

  6. The Inside Story: The man vs. wild crew who follow Bear Grylls on his travels across the globe, tell how it feels to follow in his footsteps and reveal just how they make man vs. wild.

  7. Pacific Island: On a deserted Panamanian island, Bear Grylls creates critical fresh water and uses tribal techniques to fish before taking his chances at sea on a homemade raft.

  8. Big Sky Country: Bear Grylls takes on Big Sky Country -- paragliding above the Rockies, traversing vast gullies, and making the most of abandoned debris before making his great escape on a moving train.

  9. China: Bear Grylls takes on Southern China in the aftermath of a typhoon. He tackles swollen rivers, climbs limestone gorges, is attacked by stinging ants, and uses ancient tribal techniques to catch bats for food.

  10. Guatemala: Bear Grylls rappels onto a live volcano in Guatemala, navigates a waterfall in an underground cave, creates a nest to safely sleep in but gets an unwelcome bed buddy, and encounters ancient Mayan ruins.

  11. Urban Survivor: In a special edition of Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls finds himself in a new kind of jungle -- a concrete jungle. Bear uses the same wilderness survival techniques to stay alive in a city post-disaster.

  12. North Africa: In the searing heat of the North African Sahara, Bear shows how finding water is critical to staying alive. Bear uses his own urine to keep cool and searches for water in a dried up well. He treks to the coast where he catches and eats an octopus, found in a wrecked ship. Bear uses acacia trees to make his shelter and eats a stomach-churning bug burger breakfast made of locust and moths before ending up in a deserted village.

  13. Men vs. Wild featuring a very special guest: Bear Grylls takes on his toughest assignment yet. This time he's leading a very special guest on a 48 hour survival mission in the Arctic Circle.

BONUS: Deleted scenes and River Monsters episode: Piranha: In 1976 a packed coach crashed into the Amazon killing 39 people. When the bodies were pulled out, some had been so viciously mutilated by Piranhas they could only be identified by their clothes. Extreme angler Jeremy Wade investigates the Piranha.

            Bought this for my adult son. He said it was very good & he is enjoying the set very much. He's seen many episodes on TV, which he really enjoyed, but hadn't seen these, so was the perfect gift. Thanks!

              Comments about this product:

              This was simply Bear at his best. In earlier seasons it was as if he was trying to find his way in and in Season 4 he just kicked the door down. Between your classic "Bear eats" segments and the next level of extreme survival. Bear takes you on a more realistic, more dangerous and more exciting adventure through the wild.

              The special episodes were cool as well. The celebrity episode was great with Will ferrell, think Abbott and Costello go to the woods. They should do a lot more of those. The behind the scenes episode was fantstic to see what goes into each adventure was very cool. His camera guys are nuts.

              All in all I loved it from start to finish. Whoo-ah!

                  I watch my man vs wild dvds all the time. Bear Grylls is the man. Season 4 is great especially the urban survival and the men vs wild with will farrell. I will continue to watch season 4 for a long time and look forward to worst case senario with bear grylls. [...]THANK YOU DISCOVERY CHANNEL AND BEAR GRYLLS!!!

                      Some may say this guy is fake, but there is nothing fake about the survival skills he teaches and the horrible things he eats! He is one talented and highly entertaining individual!
