How the Wild West was Won, with Ray Mears

Great programme, puts quite a few things into perspective, whether you know your mis-western history or not.

Ray Mears, the only man who can get lost in a forest and come out better fed than when he went in

Thanks for the heads-up, didn't even realise this was on.

part two was rather interesting re the rapid change from first nation to small farms to buffalo extinction to cattle droving to big growing with each generation of people taking a new role in the landscape

imho the first nation folk should not have looked after the first invaders

Totally unconnected but on Monday I had the misfortune to watch a film In Cheltenham called a 'Million Ways to Die in the West'. The shittest film I've ever seen.

Oh good, I wondered if it was worth watching - I shall add it to my (ever growing) list of things to watch.

I read it was a spoof western, thought "Blazing Saddles" and moved on...

Any film which gets less than 50% on RottenTomatoes generally isn't worth it
