Where the Wild Men Are:Revisited – I am back on the telly in Oz

Ben Fogle entertains Rick and the camera crew with his hilarious impression of a humpback whale

Yes, the shameless self-promotion continues tomorrow (Friday 5th March) at 8.30pm Sydney time  (7.30pm Queensland time) on BBC Earth. Australians who thought they had managed to escape my unbearable levels of self-satisfaction will be disappointed to hear that if they miss the show on Friday, they can stream it on catch up on Foxtel or Fetch TV.

In this show, British adventurer Ben Fogle catches up with me five years after the original program to see how my sea gypsy life has changed.

I have seen the British edit and thought it was an improvement on the first episode as it is more genuine. In the first show, the fundamental message (that anyone can do what I do) was somewhat glossed over and that has been rectified in this episode. There is a tour around Calypso II and some nice (if a bit rainy) footage of Fiji too.  Let me know what you think in the comments.

I was hoping to have the new book out to go with the broadcast, but that is going to take a few more weeks yet, I am afraid. I will post again when it is done.

Stay safe everyone and carry on!

    Hi Rick
    It was on TV tonight in New Zealand. It was great!
    Looks like you have a great life up there – we took the kids to an island in Fiji about a dozen years back and it was just lovely. Great memories.

      Bula Graeme,

      Glad you liked it. Fiji is a hard place to forget and I have spent a couple of years there now. I have now made the passage to Australia (quite a long journey as I was not allowed to stop anywhere) but I feel that won’t be the last time I see Fiji!

    Watching both programmes that Ben made with you and rewatching them time and again has inspired me to plan my retirement. I intend to spend the next 10 years learning to sail and using my spare time to hone the craft. Culminating in selling what I have and hitting the sea to roam wherever I want, no goals, no time limits just wherever takes my fancy.
    Thank Rick you’re an inspiration mate!
