“Survive This” challenges youth to push their limits, overcome their fears and develop lifelong survival skills. With no big prizes, no secret alliances and most importantly, no voting each other out, eight kids are taken into the wilderness to fulfil their personal journey. Whether it’s facing a fear or simply just proving something to themselves, no one decides except the individual, if and when they’re going to leave. Hosted by Les Stroud, SURVIVE THIS tests endurance, wit and self-determination.
The Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog

In Gnarly Woods, there are mysteries abound and almost anything can happen. A lone bell rings by itself, fish rain from the sky, green eyes glow in the dark and trees turn blue. Alfred, an energetic ten year old, clue collecting detective with a keen eye for detail and an ear for the incongruous finds it all serious mysterious. Alfred has a taste for technology and always carries his amazing Detectaberry, a high-tech pocket device that records, films, stores multitudinous amounts of information and clues, and collects fingerprints. While Sherlock Holmes had Watson as a partner, our Master of Mystery Alfred, has his two best buds, Camille and Milo! Anyone is invited to join this skilled and creative detective team – all that’s required is critical thinking, a bit of a bent for science, and the ability to link clues… Mysteries won’t always be easy, but it will always be fun!
