Stuck with Hackett

Image 1 / 10

‘Alternative engineer' and survival expert Chris Hackett prides himself on inventing modern technology from junk piles, dumpsters and maybe even a compost heap. Creativity, experience and tourniquets are a must. Proper tools and safety equipment are optional. Each week he finds himself stuck in an extreme situation, but Hackett is no bug-eating survivalist. He is just a man who believes living the good life takes junk, ingenuity and an occasional crawl through broken glass and rusty nails. In the first episode of this new 10-part series he finds himself abandoned in the desert and determined to stay cool he melts bullets, explodes a solar chimney and assembles a propane-powered flamethrower in an effort to beat the heat.
