Manhunt with Joel Lambert

2014

With only what he can carry on his back, former navy SEAL Joel Lambert is pitted against some of the world's most elite military tracking units in treacherous terrain as he attempts to evade capture in 48 hours or less. Spotlighting the thrill of the chase and juxtaposed with ingenuity fuelled by constant fear of capture, the show is filmed on-location in the United States, Poland, South Africa, Philippines, Panama and South Korea. Each episode follows Joel as he is dropped at a starting point with a head start. In less than two days, Joel must reach a pre-arranged extraction point - or risk capture. Given minimal supplies to survive - he must find anything else he needs along the way. Following the chase side-by-side with cameras capturing the action from both perspectives, viewers are brought alongside the action with Joel and the special operatives teams. Will Joel succeed - or will he fall victim to the military or the environment?

The 10 Worst Episodes of Manhunt with Joel Lambert

#1 - South Africa - Safari Survival

0.00

Season 1 - Episode 2

Joel is hunted across a private game reserve in South Africa as he faces off against one of the most specialised forces yet – the International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF). With the reserve full of deadly animals such as lions, leopards, elephants, and rhinos, Joel must be hyper aware of both the hunter force behind him – and the dangerous game ahead. Comprised of ex-military and ex-poachers, the IAPF’s keen tracking skills allow them to detect even the faintest hint of Joel, without the aid of high tech assets. But when the IAPF finds a pride of lions on the prowl, the hunt changes to a life-and-death rescue mission to find Joel before he becomes a lion’s lunch.

Season 1 - Episode 5

Joel goes up against the U.S. Army's Phantom Recon unit – a battle-tested group of trackers, supremely skilled in hunting down the most elusive of enemy targets. Their turf in southern Arizona is the harsh 75,000 acres of terrain surrounding Fort Huachuca military base, an area home to mountain lions and bears – and a much-favoured route of illegal immigrants and heavily armed drug smugglers trying to gain passage into the country. If Phantom Recon is not intimidating enough, Joel is also being monitored by a squadron of sophisticated unmanned aerial drones, whose cameras have locked in on his every move. Pitted against both top-notch trackers and the latest aerial spyware, will Joel’s skills and endurance be enough to get him to a successful extraction before the “enemy” closes in?
