Les Stroud, the â€œSurvivormanâ€
Best known as star of the highly-acclaimed international hit TV series Survivorman, Les Stroud continues to forge new pathways as a prolific, creative force. In the year 2000 Stroud took a few small cameras out into the wilderness and spent a week surviving alone without food, water, equipment or camera crew. He single-handedly created, produced, wrote, filmed, hosted, edited and wrote the theme music for these first two original, one-hour pilots for what would eventually become the series Survivorman.
