The Full, Inside Story of the Major BBC TV Series
Granted total access to the island castaways, as well as the makers of the TV series, Mark McCrum follows this extraordinary program from first conception. Events that never made it the screen are detailed, as well as the private thoughts and emotions behind the scenes. The result is a compelling, evocative, and at times hilarious account of a year in which relationships developed (and faltered), unlikely leaders emerged, and a way of living together was finally - and painstakingly - established.
The moving stories of 36 totally different people (and their animals) are interwoven in this extraordinary book, which takes to the fascinating heart of the social and televisual experiment that was 'Castaway 2000'.
