The Island with Bear Grylls
August 06, 2017 at 5:26 PM
SHINE are looking for medical professionals (doctors, medics, nurses etc) currently practicing or retired, to apply for the new series of Channel 4’s The Island with Bear Grylls. And asked us to share the details below with our members, there is also a twitter link below.
In previous series, the volunteers were stripped of all the comforts of civilisation, and cast away on a remote deserted island. They filmed themselves, and shared their raw and exhilarating story of survival.
We are looking for people who are fit and able to participate, of all ages (18+), each with their unique skillset, from a variety of backgrounds and professions who are confident in their ability to thrive but they do not need any experience in adventure or survival pursuits to participate. We will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates.
‘This is Lord of the flies meets Bear Grylls meets Darwin’s survival of the fittest. Man has moved further and further from his hunter-gatherer origins. We take food, shelter, warmth for granted; we barely have to expend any time and energy to get them. I want to find out what happens when you strip people of all the comforts of modern life’ Bear Grylls
The flyer (in PDF) can also be found on the BIA website or click the link below to see how to apply: www.theislandwithbeargrylls.com
Closing date Monday 14th August 2017.
Many thanks and good luck to anyone who applies
