In 2017 Mark Watson went on the show The Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. It involved being abandoned on an island, starved half to death (literally), almost struck by lightning, cut off from all loved ones and turned into a psychological wreck. He was pretty sure it was the most challenging situation he would ever be in.
Then, in 2020, the entire planet basically went into survival-show mode. As we crawl from the wreckage of the pandemic, Mark dispenses some of the wisdom he brought back from the Island to suggest ways we can adapt. But still with jokes.
