Bear Goes Wild With Barack Obama (Channel 4 20 Dec 2015)

Published

on

AIRDATE: Sunday 20 December 2015 at 9.00pm on Channel 4

In a historic and unprecedented special episode, Bear Goes Wild with Barack Obama, Bear Grylls takes President Barack Obama on an adventure in the Alaskan wilderness.

Viewers will see a side of the Commander in Chief that they’ve never seen before as Bear and President Obama journey across a glacial outwash and through a dense forest on their way to Alaska’s famed Exit Glacier, where they see the effects of climate change first-hand. Bear gives the President a true taste of the Alaskan wilderness, as we see the two men cooking bear-gnawed, half-eaten salmon and chatting around their campfire. From family, fears and faith, to the overwhelming duties as Commander in Chief – and even Bear’s penchant for drinking his own urine – no subject is off limits.

During the episode, they encounter bear fur in the Alaskan forests and climb trees for berries before reaching the snout of the glacier itself to witness the effects of climate change. This special episode is an inspiring, heart-warming and insightful journey, the like of which viewers will never have seen before: the US President and the UK’s very own adventurer Bear Grylls on a first-of-its-kind TV adventure, which is only part of what makes this special episode so remarkable. That the President made contact with the adventurer to ask him to explore the Alaskan wilderness together makes this all the more extraordinary.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
