For youtube (and similar) movies that are ERE relevant.

I suggest mainly focusing on clips that are 15+ minutes or longer.

I'll start with one suggested in another thread

And add a Dick Proenneke playlist

Thirty Days to Survival: A short film from the 1970s following a NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) group. Interesting on many levels.

Here's an old film from during the war on growing a Victory Garden. It's interesting if you're into this sort of thing. Just ignore the part about spraying carcinogens on the plants to protect them from bugs and diseases. :D

@Felix, looks pretty good.

One of the big reasons is simply CIA psychological research after WWII and aggressively pushing an ideology after Bretton Woods.

Watching it now. That's probably what this video gets into.

I know this isn't your main point but here are a couple quick thoughts.

Dual Survival is pretty cool. I always wonder about the impact of the camera crew on those kinds of shows though. I mean when a few people are following you around with cameras and it states in the opening text that they won't let anything too bad happen, they probably don't feel like they're in too much danger. You somewhat wonder if they're ever going to bed hungry, or are being supplied toilet paper, and stuff like that.

It's definitely interesting. I'm not trying to be too negative. Just thinking about the mechanics of it. I definitely haven't done some of the stuff they've done (Tierra del Fuego and whatnot comes to mind). But I feel like there have been times when I had to rough it harder than they did at least on the show (no one bailing me out, freezing my ass off, hungry, etc).

Also, it must be pretty disappointing when the boats that "rescue" them discover a camera crew and a huge budget. I think that's kind of funny. But I guess they probably smooth it over because they're doing something educational etc.

Anyway good show for sure. This is more just meta analysis of "reality" type shows. I think about the same kinds of stuff when those "picking" shows are on for old antiques and pawning and bartering and stuff. Mostly real but an element of fiction etc.
