The press release for Dangerous Jobs for women

So I just arrived back from Australia after having taken part television documentary below. I have taken this press release from Ricochet - the television companies' own website. It is and it has lots of inforamtion about other cool programmes as well.

This is the photo of the trawler boat we were working on.

Dangerous Jobs for Girls (working title)

Is is really still a man's world? Each week three different highly skilled, motivated and competitive women - who are used to winning - will travel to the last places on earth where men and male values still rule. There they will compete against each other as they try to take on the last bastions of masculinity.

In the wilds of British Columbia, the women must battle treacherous weather conditions to work on one of very few logging camps open throughout the winter - 44 male workers alone died last year felling. In the African Bush, their task is to hunt and kill antelope alongside professional hunters.

In Australia they must live and fish off the coast of Tasmania with its notoriously unpredictable swells. Whilst in Brazil, their mission is live the life of the Pantanerios - local cowboys - herding, branding, lassoing and castrating the cattle.

They may be winners in their own field, but can these women live like men, learn the skills they will need to survive in the harshest of conditions and beat their male counterparts at their own game?

To be aired July 23rd 9pm Channel 4
