Three groups of three people are blindfolded, dropped into one of the most hostile and remote places on Earth - and then abandoned. They have no idea where they are - except that it is 3,000 miles from home.
In this real life adventure series, the teams are in a race to be the first back to Nelson’s Column using any legal means they can, with only 100 dollars in their pockets and food for 3 days.
There are no comfort trucks or support personnel off camera - the LOST! teams are well and truly isolated and must use their wits to survive and move through wilderness in countries where they have no language or reference points - this is raw and real adventure.
The series was a pure adrenalin rush which caught the imagination of the adventurer in all of us - and registered strongly with the elusive twenty-something group of viewers. A hit for Channel 4, the format was bought and aired by the NBC network - in the week before 9/11.
