    Default Last Man Standing

    I received a nice request via the contact us form, and I'm going to post it here:

    Hello,
    At the BBC we are currently planning the second series of Last Man
    Standing - a series about tribal sports. We are in the preliminary
    stages of production and currently looking for athletic, western
    adventurers to send to the most remote corners of the globe to live
    with indigenous peoples, train with them, and take part in their
    ancient sporting festivals.

    We wondered if it would be possible to post our press release on
    your website or forward to your members/organisation?

    I have pasted the press release below with a brief synopsis of the
    programme below for further information. If you have any further
    questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
    Thankyou.

    Kind regards,

    Louisa

    LAST MAN STANDING SERIES SYNOPSIS
    BBC Television Documentary Unit
    Sporting activities have been part of human life for millennia. This
    ground breaking BBC series is a celebration of traditional sports. It
    will explore the incredible cultural richness of indigenous sporting
    events and festivals around the world.

    Last Man Standing will look at the indigenous sports of eight very
    different communities, from the Arctic to the Amazon, from Africa
    to Asia, to uncover some of the toughest events on the planet, and
    provide an insight into the ancient history and culture of some of
    the world’s most remote areas and the people who live there.

    To really learn about each particular sport, six athletes from the UK
    and USA will spend a week immersed in the sport and culture. The
    athletes will eat and sleep with the community and live as they do.
    They will train with them and learn rare insights into the sport and
    the way of life. At the end of the week, they will take part in the
    activity and play by local rules.

    The series will explore the cultural and religious significance of
    each sport with sensitivity and respect. With the help of local
    guides and mentors, the athletes will also learn about the history
    and relevance of each sport.

    It will, through showing features and emotions common to people
    the world over, promote understanding and respect for different
    ways of life. These sporting events, although firmly rooted in each
    specific culture, will also highlight how much very different peoples
    of the world have in common.

    This landmark series will show some of the most unusual, colourful
    sporting events in a variety of countries, and will provide an
    entertaining and fresh insight into some of the richest cultures in
    the world.
