Survival Show Debuts June 18

A show filmed around the Quatsino First Nation will focus on survival skills.

A survivalist show filmed around the Quatsino First Nation will be debuting on the History Channel on June 18 at 10 a.m. Eastern.

‘Alone’ involves 10 survivalists who were left in the Vancouver Island wilderness near Quatsino and had to survive using what they’ve been able to stuff into a backpack.

The series, is similar to Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid, and CBS’s Survivor, except these survivalists had no team, no partner, no producers, no camera crew, and no celebrity host.

The competitors were separated from one another in the harsh terrain to hunt, build shelters and fend off predators.

They faced extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunged into the unknown. They self-documented their experience. Alone was produced for History by Leftfield Pictures.

At stake for the participants in Alone was $500,000 awarded to the person who lasted the longest.

Alone will air in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide on History and other channels from the A+E Networks portfolio and will be broadcast live at the Quatsino First Nation hall, said Director of Lands and Resources James Redford. The event is open to the public and Port Alice Mayor Jan Allen has been invited to attend the premiere.

Allen, said Redford, will arrive by boat and be welcomed and escorted to the hall where there will be a cultural reception.

The concession will be open with proceeds going to the Elders Program of Quatsino.
