Ed Stafford, the fearless explorer, has a new show entitled, `Left for Dead' on Discovery TV.

Being the first person to ever walk it's full length, the show captures the highs, lows and painful truths of his 859 day journey, sharing how he overcame physical and mental challenges to reach his goal.

 

Ed is no stranger to these sorts of hig-risk expeditions, having lived on a desert island completely without help (no tools, provisions or support) for sixty days, a feat which was documented in another Discovery documentary, Naked and Marooned with Ed Stafford.  The follow up series Marooned with Ed Stafford saw him left in remote uninhabitable areas where he worked to survive completely without aid.  Alongside these incredible challenges, Ed is retired from the British army and has also worked in Afghanistan alongside the UN, helping security and logistics of their first Presidential election.
