Ray Mears is doing very nice job here. His shows are very informative and helpful. And you can actually use his tips and tricks in your backyard. I've learned a lot from him. I never had succeeded in lighting fire with sticks before but after watching his episode of canoe journey, i was able to not only lighting fire on the ground, but as he said also succeeded in lighting the fire within. And Ray also has a vast knowledge of plants and berries and fungi as well. And we should not compare his works with other shows like Man vs wild which is totally a different show. Ray mostly tell us about how to live of the lands. It's quite astonishing that how much you can do with little knowledge of bush-craft and little bit of improvisation.
