Ray survived a helicopter crash when filming his first TV series in the early 90s and helped Northumbria police track down one of the UK’s most notorious criminals in 2010.

He has been discovering the joys of exploring the wilderness from an early age. He is fascinated by those wild areas of the planet that are as yet undisturbed by civilized human activity.
